The team consists of qualified teachers and teaching assistants who support children’s learning. Each child will have a key person who they will create a strong relationship with. The key person will ensure that they monitor your child’s progress and encourage them to play and learn in our wonderful learning environment.
Once your child turns 2 you can register them for a place in our Nursery School. An admissions form must be completed and the child’s birth certificate must be seen by the school. Our admission criteria is set by the Local Authority:
In the first instance, priority will be given to children residing within the Wigan borough.
A. The child has been identified by the LEA as having learning difficulties, or a disability greater than most other children, and will benefit from early integration.
B. The child has a particular social, medical or language need.
C. Priority should be given to the ‘rising 4’ cohort, in order to maximise the opportunities for children to receive at least one year of nursery education before starting school.
D. Distance from school.
In the event of oversubscription the above criteria will apply.
Parents / Carers who wish to enrol their child for Hindley Nursery School can fill out a form which is available from our reception office and kept on file. Once your child’s name is on the waiting list you will be contacted by the school office when your child is due to start nursery. The staff are always keen to show parents around the nursery so please ring and book an appointment.
We have a limited availability to purchase additional sessions when your child is already accessing free nursery entitlement. Applications will be on a first come first served basis and will be charged at £12.50 per session or £3.50 for lunch club.
