Nursery

Nursery September 2020 Pupil Registration Form 

This part of the website is to provide information for parents and children who are due to start at Nursery in autumn 2020. You will have already received a letter detailing some information about transition. We will use this page of our website to add further information such as videos, presentations and guidance documents. Please keep checking this page as it will continue to be updated in the coming weeks. 

All families were sent an email in July giving information about visit dates and start dates. The email used was the 'contact 1' email on the pupil registration form. If you have not received an email, or you would like to ask a question, please email Nursery@geoffreyfieldinfant.reading.sch.uk 

Please make sure you have read the most recent letter regarding September. This includes systems for drop off and pick up times, wraparound care and what to bring to school. Some information may differ slightly from the previous presentations as systems and risk assessments have been amended due to Goverment guidelines for schools regarding coronavirus.

Admissions information

Primary schools catchment area map

Nursery admissions are handled internally by the Nursery Admissions Panel consisting of school staff and Governors.

Children can be registered onto the waiting list from the age of 2 years.

Application forms and admissions policies are available from the school office or from the school website. Completed forms should be handed into the school office during school hours with the child’s original birth certificate or passport to verify their date of birth.

Children are eligible for placement in Nursery the term after their third birthday. However, the majority of places are filled in September due to the admission of children into the Reception year. Parents are contacted as soon as a place is available .

If the waiting list is oversubscribed the admission criteria (see Nursery Admissions Policy) will be used.

Nursery transfers are only accepted in exceptional circumstances.
