Nursery will be closed for the half term from Monday 27th to Friday 31st May
and re-open on Monday 3rd June 2013
The policy and regulations for Admissions are determined by the Local Education Authority in consultation with all of its schools. As required by the Education Reform Act 1988, the standard number for CIPPENHAM NURSERY SCHOOL, which is reviewed annually, has been set at 156 part time places.
If spaces are available, we are able to admit children in the term after their third birthday. Cippenham Nursery is able to offer children 15 hours per week, term time.
The offer of places for the following September will coincide with the Authority Reception Admissions date.
The offer of places for January will take place the Autumn half term.
The offer of places for April will take place the Spring half term.
If applications exceed the number of available places, Cippenham Nursery School will apply the following criteria in making allocations.
Priority will be given to:
When filling remaining places mid-term, use the previous half term's waiting list first.
Please note the following:
It should be noted that we are unable to permit pupils to continue with any allocated place at Cippenham Nursery School beyond the end of the current scholastic year (ended July), in which they turn four years old. e.g. child turns four years old between September and August of an academic year, the place ends at the end of the summer term for that academic year.
This aspect of the admissions policy allows Cippenham Nursery School to operate in line with the admission age and criteria for Reception Classes at Infant Schools within Slough Borough.
Parents of children who choose schools from outside Slough Borough should be aware that this may mean that their child's place at Cippenham Nursery School may end a term or more prior to their child being admitted to Reception Class in an Infant School. As such Cippenham Nursery School recommends that all parents who choose schools outside Slough Borough familiarise themselves with admission age and criteria for their local education authority.
Where a pupil fails to return on the agreed return date and no mitigating circumstances, such as illness certified by a Doctor, have been offered, schools have the power to remove the child from the school roll. If the child does not return on the agreed date the school will contact the family by phone and if there is no reply a letter will be sent.
Pupils returning to a Slough school, who have been taken off roll, will be re-admitted to the school only if the school has a place available. Where a place is not available, the parents must apply for a place at an alternative school. The Admissions team can be contacted for advice on where there are vacancies on 01753 875728.
