Registering for a place
Parents wishing to apply for a place in the Nursery will need to complete an application form. This expresses their interest and will put your child on the waiting list.
You may request a visit to the Nursery either before you register or before you are asked to accept a place for your child. Please contact the school office to make an appointment 01252 716729.
Once an admission form is completed, parents will be contacted as soon as possible during the summer term for September intake.

Nursery Admissions Criteria for 2 year olds
Limited spaces are available for 2 year olds and top priority will be given to those children who qualify for FEET funding. In the event of over subscription, applications will be considered in accordance with the same criteria as 3 & 4 year olds followed by nearest to school.
Once a two year old is placed on role at Hale Academy Nursery they will automatically be entitled to a three year old place and the number of three year old places will reduce.
It should be noted that admission to Hale Academy Nursery does not guarantee admission to the Reception class in the main school. Applications for Reception must be made separately and submitted by the statutory
deadline in order to be considered.
The nursery does not give priority to the school at Reception age. It does however help those children who do come to the main school with the transition and allows the children to become familiar both with the staff and surroundings as they start their Reception year.
