St David's  Church in Wales Primary School is a Voluntary Aided primary school with a strong and distinctive Christian character. The first priority of the Governors, as the Admissions Authority, is to admit the children of families who choose to have their children educated within a Christian ethos, emphasising the importance of prayer, worship and Christian teaching.

This is reflected in the whole life of the school. With this in mind, if the school is oversubscribed, priority will be given to the children of families who can demonstrate this through their active involvement in a Christian community.

The standard number of children that may be admitted to the Reception class each year is 30. St David's CiW Primary School offers part-time Nursery places five mornings and five afternoons each week. Children are admitted to the morning nursery class in the autumn term of the academic year of their fourth birthday. (The academic year runs from 1st September to 31st August.)

We also provide a rising 3’s afternoon Nursery class to which pupils are admitted at the beginning the term following their 3rd birthday. The school admits up to 30 nursery pupils each year in each class. In the event of more than 30 applications for nursery places, the same oversubscription criteria would be applied as set out for the allocation of places in the Reception class.

Applications for Nursery places should be submitted directly to the school.  Parents will be notified of the decision on the last day of the spring term, prior to the Easter break. As in all schools, children who are admitted to our nursery classes will not have an automatic right of admission to full time education at our school. A child’s name can be entered onto the waiting list at any age from birth to school age, but no guarantee of a place can be given.

Please find a copy of our Admissions policy and application form.
