With the recent changes to Nursery places in the borough, Cyril Jackson has 48 full-time and 24 part-time places available. We will try our best to meet parental preferences for full or part time places and, if part time, a morning or afternoon place. However, if demand exceeds availability for preferences, we will use the above criteria to allocate places accordingly.
Morning sessions run from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm
Afternoon sessions run from 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm
All Nursery places, full and part time, are offered without charge.
Priorities for admission after 5 years of age:
- Children looked after by a Local Authority (children in care).
- Children for whom there is an identified special need - educational, social, emotional, physical or medical.
- Sisters or brothers of children already attending Cyril Jackson, provided they live within 1.5 miles of the school.
- Children who live closest, measured by the shortest walking distance.
If you are unsuccessful in your bid for a place in the Foundation Two (Reception) or older classes, you have the right to appeal. Appeal forms are available from the school office.
During the Autumn Term, parents of children in their final year at Cyril Jackson will receive information about transferring to a secondary school the following September. A parents/carers session is also arranged for the end of Year 5 to explain necessary procedures.
