Information for parents on Nursery place allocations:

 

Until 2012 the Governors and Local Authority fully funded full time provision in the nursery. Since then the funding the school receives was reduced to cover 15 hours provision instead of full time and St Charles Primary School has been supplementing the shortfall. However going forward this is unsustainable and the governors have agreed that due to funding constraints a nominal “top up” fee will need to be charged to help cover costs.

 

 

In order to continue to offer high quality nursery education, full time nursery provision fee of £50 a week (which is £10 per day) will be charged. Priority is as per the admission criteria along with commitment to full time provision.

Once we have received notification from the Admissions team a SIF, Certificate of Catholic Practice or Certificate of Religious Practice*,a copy of the Admissions Policy will be sent to you. These forms should be completed and returned to the school office with
