The Council, as the Local Authority (LA) ensures the provision of nursery education within a range of schools. This can be English medium, Welsh medium or an Aided or Controlled school. Nursery provision is offered on the basis of five 2 ½ hour sessions per week during the school year 2013/2014. The sessions which your child will be able to attend will be made known to you by the headteacher as soon as possible after you have been notified about a nursery school place for your child.
If your child has an older brother or sister currently registered at your preferred school, who will still be registered at the time the younger one is due to start, please note this on the admission form, giving the elder brother or sister’s name and date of birth.
You are reminded that transportation is not provided for children of nursery school age except in exceptional circumstances. Please note, also, that admission to a nursery class at a particular school does not guarantee a place for your child at the reception class in that school.
Please complete the admission form and return it to the Headteacher of your selected Nursery or Primary or Infants school by 25 February 2013. The Admitting Authority can only admit a certain number of pupils to each nursery and will only admit pupils up to the admission number, this number is shown in the school list in the Parents' Guide to Education Services in Wrexham. Late applications will be dealt with after all those that have been handed in by the deadline, it is therefore very important for you to meet the date referred to above.
The Admission Authority's allocation of places criteria is set out in the County Borough's Parents' Guide to Education Services in Wrexham. Copies are available at the Authority's schools, offices and for reference purposes, at public libraries
If you have expressed a preference for a community, nursery, primary, or a controlled school, your application will be considered by the LA. Alternatively, if you have expressed a preference for a Catholic or Church in Wales Aided school, your application will be considered by the governing body of that school.
It will take some time for the allocation process to be completed but you will be informed by 19 April 2013 whether or not your child has been allocated a place at your preferred nursery.
Although the Admitting Authority will consider parental preferences when allocating places, you are reminded that, should you not be allocated a place at the nursery school for which you expressed a preference, there is no formal right to appeal against this decision.
If however you feel that there are special circumstances you wish to bring to the Authority’s attention, please note them on the form. If your child has a disability, which could affect his/her progress and participation in school life, please note this on the form.
If your child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs, the LA will try its best to allow your preference of nursery school but it has to make sure that the school can meet your child’s needs fully. After your form has been received, a Local Authority Officer will write to you and may wish to arrange a meeting to discuss your child’s nursery education.
Should your circumstances change and you need to change your preference of school but have already returned the admission form, please contact the Admissions Office on 01978 297401.
