We hope that you will consider entrusting our school with the care and education of your child, whether they are starting out school for the first time in our part-time nursery, or moving to the area from another setting. We understand that choosing the right school is important, and one of the biggest decisions a parent will make.
Visits to our school are warmly encouraged before you make your decision, and we are always very happy to meet with prospective parents to discuss your child’s needs and your aspirations for them. First impressions count, and we hope that early in your visit, you will pick up on the ‘family feel’ which is at the heart of our school.

Update: SNMAT Admission Appeals During the Coronavirus Crisis
Given the situation relating to the current Coronavirus epidemic and the fast moving changes relating to Government advice on public health, the SNMAT has taken the difficult decision to suspend its admissions appeals, for the foreseeable future, pending further guidance from the Department for Education. This decision has been taken for the protection of all parties involved in the appeal hearing.
Nottinghamshire County Council who administer SNMATs admissions appeals has confirmed they are still taking appeals from parents and logging them as normal, so if you wish to register an appeal for an SNMAT partner academy, please go to NCC’s website and complete the online appeals form.
Applying for an In Year School Transfer
School Admissions Code 2021 which came into force on 1 September 2021 required local authorities to publish information on the website explaining how in-year applications can be made and how they will be dealt with by 31 October 2021. This includes setting out information for parents about which schools Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) coordinates the applications for and which schools will manage their own in-year admissions.
