Our consultation is now closed.
You can still read about our plans to open a nursery provision at One Degree Academy below.
Our school opened under the Free Schools Programme in September 2016 with 60 reception places. Many of our parents with younger children have to travel considerable distance to reach our temporary site. We believe we could help by opening a nursery provision as part of our school. We anticipate this to be for 2 – 4 years of age.
A nursery provision within our school will also truly enable our vision of “all-though education” continuing all the way up until the age of 19.
We propose that the Nursery would have places for 2 and 3 year olds, depending on demand; it will be run as part of our school, situated at our temporary site, and running at regular school hours. The children would be able to start in the term after they are two years old. This provision would operate under separate admissions arrangements and be provided on a first come first basis.
We believe that we can offer Nursery provision that is of high quality and that will give children a positive start to their school life.
