Leopold Primary School offers nursery facilities on the Hawkshead Road site. Please note: there is currently no nursery provision at the Gwenneth Rickus building.
The number of intended admissions for the year is 55 children. Only full-time places may be awarded. The fee for these places totals £60 a week.
The school admits one main September intake per year, and a few siblings may be admitted in January if they are three-years-old during the autumn term and a vacant place is available.
Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied (in this order) to decide which children to admit:
- Children in public care/looked after children
- Children with siblings attending the school at the date of admission
- Children who live geographically nearer to the school
Parents must fully complete the application forms, but in doing so, must realise that this does not lead to automatic transfer to reception class or to a guaranteed place in the school.
This admission policy endeavours to fulfil the above with fairness and equality for all children and families. Pupils will be admitted to nursery without reference to ability or aptitude.
Nursery applications may be obtained from the main school office at the Hawkshead Road site, and must be collected from school. The closing dates for nursery applications will be in January of each year.
