Nursery Admissions

Bluecoat Primary Church of England Academy – Nursery

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. 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.
