Applying for a Nursery place
We very much welcome visits from parents and carers prior to requesting a nursery place for your child and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please read the following information before making a request using the link at the bottom of this section.
The governing body at The Federation of Holy Trinity CE Schools is committed to the nursery being led by qualified teachers and it being an integral part of the school. Therefore, the vision, values and aims for the nursery are shared with the whole school, as are the school’s policies, practices, curriculum and ethos.
With care at the centre of what we offer and through the teacher led approach, we ensure we have an age appropriate curriculum and provide opportunities and experiences which support and enhance children’s development. Having nursery as part of the school provides the ability to plan for children’s learning over the longer term, understand, assess and meet their needs whilst also preparing them for each phase of their education.
To ensure quality of provision for all children who attend nursery we carefully manage the structure and organisation of all sessions. Children who attend morning sessions only, have the same access to learning and playing opportunities, including phonics, as those who only attend afternoon sessions and vice versa. In addition, pick up and drop off times correspond with all phases of the school as many children have siblings.
Effective timings of the day maximise the quality of sessions and enable proactive staff planning and preparation for every session.
When allocating places for nursery, we follow the North Yorkshire Admissions Policy.
