Should there be vacant places, the Governing Body may offer some part time places to children in the term after which they had their 3rd birthday following, the Calderdale Early Years Admissions Policy.

Our Nursery, comprising of 3 spacious rooms and private grounds, is led by our Teacher Mrs L. Lloyd and our Nursery Nurses are Mrs R Acheson and Mrs K Normanton.
