Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will school still have admissions at age 4 into reception (F2)?
Yes, all families will need to apply for a place into main school from F2 until year 6. This is the case even if your child has a place in the proposed nursery and is the same as now for all Wirral schools with a nursery class. This has been the case for children who have attended BiddyAve Buddies.
2. Will the times change if it becomes a school nursery?
This is a possibility. School will employ a teacher to run the nursery and this will improve standards, but it may mean that children who require a full day (8am to 5:45pm) will need to use the breakfast and after school clubs.
30 hour places will ensure a full school day timetable and parents who qualify for 15 hours can choose am or pm slots to attend.
