There are currently 52 full time equivalent places in Nursery and our Admission limit for main school is 50 children in each year group Y1 - Y3, and 40 children in each year group Y4 - Y6. Children are admitted into Reception at the beginning of the year in which they have their fifth birthday.

Admission to Foundation Stage

We work as a Foundation Unit with children in Nursery (Foundation 1) and Reception (Foundation 2) working together. This helps children to adapt more easily from Nursery in to Reception.

Foundation 1 (Nursery)

Parents who wish their children to attend our Nursery complete a Nursery application form. Names are entered onto the database in chronological order and each term places are given to the oldest children on the list. Prior to children starting Nursery parents and children attend ‘Early Bird’ sessions in order to become familiar with the school setting. Parents must produce their child’s birth certificate before they can be admitted. Pupils are entitled to 15 hours per week. We try to be flexible and where possible, pupils may use their 15 hour allocation in either 5 mornings or afternoons or a combination of full and part days.

Foundation 2 (Reception)

Parents must complete a form, which needs to be submitted to the Local Authority by the end of January, in order to request a place in Reception. Having a place in Nursery does not automatically ensure a place in Reception. All pupils are admitted into Reception in the September of the year in which they are 5 however in order to ease transition there is some flexibility and individual introduction plans can be implemented in consultation with the Foundation Unit staff.

Estcourt Primary Academy remains committed to inclusion in its broadest sense and will continue to follow the admissions procedures of Hull City Council.
