Our Admissions Policy
We are able to offer Foundation 1 (F1) provision before the children start full-time school. Children may join F1 one or two terms after their third birthday as below:
• Children with birthdays between 1st January - 31st March 2017 may be admitted to F1 on the first day of the Autumn term in September 2020
• Children with birthdays between 1st April -31st August 2017 may be admitted to F1 on the first day of the Autumn term in September 2020
• Children with birthdays between 1st September - 31st December 2017 may be admitted to F1 on the first day of the Summer term in April 2021 (provided that there are spaces available)
Families that receive 15 hours of funded childcare can pay for additional hours where available, at a cost of £4.00 per hour.
Abbey Gates also offers up to 30 hours of funded childcare for eligible families. These hours can be shared with other childcare providers. Parents should state their preference for sessions on the form provided by the school office and sessions will be allocated where possible.
A daily charge of £5.00 for lunchtime cover if your child stays all day.
A place in F1 (part-time) does not guarantee a full-time statutory place.
Parents and children will be invited to a meeting prior to the start date to confirm sessions required/available.
In the event of over subscription to F1, the same admission guidelines as Nottinghamshire County Council will be applied.
