Welcome to St John's

      CE Primary School

2 Hands

Dear Parent/Carer, 

We are delighted that you are considering our nursery for your child. We appreciate that it is a huge decision and we would like to help you through the process.

What you can expect from us:painted hands

  • A pre-school newsletter emailed to you.
  • An open morning/afternoon for you to visit the whole school including nursery.  The main focus of this will be a tour around school. We do this during the school day so that you get a feel for daily life at St John’s.
  • A letter informing you of whether your child has been allocated a nursery place. These are usually sent out in the Autumn term of the year before your child is due to start.

Once you have accepted an offer, you can expect:

  • An invitation to a new parents’ meeting. This takes place during an evening in the Summer term. It is presentation based and not suitable for children.
  • An invitation for you and your child to attend a short session in nursery in the Summer term.
  • A home visit from our nursery staff in the September that you child begins nursery.

 If you and your child would like to get to know us a little better, you may wish to consider our Wednesday morning ‘Stay and Play’ session. These sessions are run during term time by a member of our staff.

For reception places, you will need to apply to the local authority. Further details can be found at: http://cms.walsall.gov.uk/school_admissions.htm    We have no influence over this process but the local authority does follow our own admissions criteria published on our website.
