New Nursery Intake

Children start school on a part-time basis in the Nursery class in the September following their 3rd birthday and will attend full time school in the Reception class in the September following their 4th birthday.

Forms are available from the School Office at the beginning of November for the following Academic Year and must be returned before 18th December to ensure that your child is considered for a place in the school.

Following a formal offer of a place in Ysgol Craig y Don, parents will be invited along to a Parents Evening in the July before their child/ren start school in the Nursery Class in the September.

At this meeting, they will be advised whether their child has been allocated a morning or afternoon session and given the dates of the staggered entry during their child’s first two weeks in school.

Parents and their child/ren will also be invited to the Nursery New Intake Teddy Bear’s picnic which will take place in the week following the Parents evening mentioned above.

Reception Class

Please note that acceptance to the Nursery class will not guarantee admission to the Reception class; parents need to apply formally for a place in the Reception Class (full time).  Forms will automatically be given to those children already attending our Nursery Class.  Forms for new children wishing to start Reception Class in September will be available from the School Office from the end of October prior to the children starting Reception the following September.
