Three Year Old Nursery Admissions Policy

Three Year Old Nursery Admission Policy


The nursery aims to provide each child on the waiting list with a part-time place as soon after their 3rd birthday as possible (this is not normally until the beginning of the term following their 3rd birthday) and hopes to offer a minimum of three terms.


However as there is usually a long waiting list priority will be given by the Governors to admission applications as ordered here:-
 

  1. Children who are ’Looked after’ in accordance with section 22 of the Children Act 1989.
  2. Children who are on the Child Protection Register and live in the normal area served by the school.
  3. Children who are both living in the normal catchment area of the school and have siblings of compulsory school age attending the school at the time of admission.
  4. Children who are the subject of a statutory assessment or a statement of special educational needs and live in the normal area served by the school.
  5. Children where there is outside agency involvement and live in the normal area served by the school.
  6. Children from the normal area of the school in date of birth order.
  7. Children from the wider area of the school in date of birth order who have siblings attending school at the time of admission.
  8. Children from the wider area of the school who have attended the Two year Old unit at Arboretum, in date of birth order.  (These will by definition be disadvantaged children).

  9. Children from the wider area of the school in date of birth order.

NOTES:

  • Children who attend the Nursery do not have an automatic place in the Reception classes at Arboretum and should apply through Derby City central admissions.
    If you have a child in the nursery it does not mean that older siblings will be offered a place in the school.
