Nursery Admissions

For all Nursery admission enquiries please email Miss Green, Office Supervisor, at office@warrenwood.medway.sch.uk

Please click here for Nursery application form that will need to be completed and returned back to Miss Green, so your child can be added onto our waiting list and your application can be processed (ideally by email or post or alternatively please bring to the school).

Nursery children are admitted from the term following their 3rd birthday and we have 3 intakes a year (September, January, March/April depending when Easter falls).

We offer both 15 and 30 hour funding. Our morning sessions run from 8.30am to 11.30am and our afternoon sessions run from 12.30pm to 3.30pm. All day sessions run from 8.30am to 3.15pm.

To check your eligibility if you think you may be entitled to 30 hour funding (either a lone parent working 16 hours or more per week or two parents both working more than 16 hours a week), please visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.

If you are eligible for the 30 hour funding, you will need to give Miss Green your National Insurance Number and 30 hour code provided by HMRC before your child starts Nursery so we can register this with Medway to receive the funding. You will need to refresh your 30 hour code at certain points throughout the year, this is to check that you are still eligible to receive the funding but your code will never change.

Please note that with the 30 hour funding, due to the length of the school day, you will be charged an extra 3.75 hours a week as the school week is 33.75 hours and your funding only covers you for 30 hours.

With our 15 hour funding, sessions can either be taken as AM sessions, PM sessions or across 2.5 days. If taking your hours across 2.5 days, once you have reached your 15 hours, any additional hours will be charged at £4.06 per hour.

Additional sessions can be arranged on a permanent basis if your child is on 15 hour funding and are currently charged at £4.06 per hour. Once these are booked these hours cannot be changed.

Please note that Nursery children are expected to attend all their booked sessions that have been asked for on a weekly basis unless there is a valid reason for their absence. Should your child not attend all their booked sessions for three consecutive weeks, their place in our Nursery will be reviewed as we are an oversubscribed Nursery.

If you wish to withdraw your child from our Nursery, a terms notice must be given.

 

The Evergreen Centre

All referrals for admission to our specialist provision for speech and language needs for The Evergreen Centre will be via consultation with the current provision and the LA Decision Making Group (DMG).

Parents will initially request a placement through the SEN Team at Medway Council who will then consult with The Evergreen Centre at Warren Wood Primary Academy.

The Evergreen Centre at Warren Wood Primary Academy will then advise the SEN Team at Medway Council as to whether a place can be offered.

If a place is agreed then this will be named on the child’s final EHCP.

Further information can be obtained by emailing Miss Donoghoe (SENCo) at donoa065@sflt.org.uk.

For all Admissions – Birth Certificate and Proof of Address                                                                                                    

Once your child has been offered a place at our Academy, you will need to complete and admissions pack. We will also need to see your child’s original birth certificate and proof of your address before your child starts at our Academy.
