Preschool Provision

There will be 10 places available per session, and the children will be taught alongside our Reception children by Mrs Bates, Miss McConkey and Mrs Byrne. We are confident that our Early Years provision will continue to be outstanding, with the addition of our preschool children.

Morning sessions will run from 8.45am-11.45am.

Afternoon sessions will run from 12.15pm-3.15pm.

Lunchtime sessions will be available from 11.45am-12.15pm. The cost for this will be £4.65 including a school dinner, or £2.25 if you send your child with a packed lunch.

If you require before and after school care we do have a Kids Club which nursery children can access. Breakfast Club  runs from 7.30 until 8.45am at a cost of £4, and 3.15 until 5.45pm at a cost of £9 per session.

All children who are 3 years old by 31 August will be considered for admission from September of the same year. Each child is entitled to 15 hours per week of free universal provision during term time and some families may be entitled to an additional 15 hours extended provision.  You can also access extra morning or afternoon sessions for an additional cost of £13.50 per session.

Preschool application forms are available, on request, from the school office.

Once we have received your application we will consider it in line with Lancashire’s Nursery Admissions Policy which can be found above. You will receive a pack from school confirming whether you have received a place. This will include an acceptance form, parental agreement and further information about lunchtime and before & after school care if applicable.

Prior to accepting the offer you should be committed to your child regularly attending. Places may be withdrawn where attendance is unsatisfactory.

If you are not offered a place your child’s name will be placed on the school waiting list. If places become available these will be offered in accordance with the admission criteria.

Please note that admissions to primary school reception classes are a completely separate process from preschool classes. If you have a child on roll at preschool he/she will not automatically get a place in our school. For primary school admissions there is a different application procedure.

Once we have your acceptance form and parental agreement, we will send you out a welcome pack with all the relevant information.
