Bluecoat Primary Academy offers a nursery provision for rising 3s (N1) and rising 4s (N2). As of September 2018 we are able to offer a combination of part-time and full-time places to 3 and 4 year olds (please below for further details). Funding for 3 and 4 year old children start the term after the child turns 3. Children will not be able to start Nursery until this point.
We manage our own admissions and our aim is to offer as many places to as many children as possible, whilst ensuring we maximise our capacity and encourage children that are likely to start their Primary education at the Bluecoat Primary Academy. This enables us to maintain the sustainability of the nursery provision and have maximum impact on as many children within our Christian framework.

How to apply:

Once in receipt of the application form the Academy will place the child on the waiting list. This list will be reviewed should a place become available and again in April 2019 for places to be formally offered in May for a September 2019 start, based on the admissions criteria.
