Admission to Nursery Classes are provided as follows
Children are normally admitted in the September following their third birthday.
If there are sufficient places in a nursery, children may be admitted earlier as children can start nursery the term following their third birthday.
e.g. children born between:
1st September and 31st December are eligible to start nursery in January
1st January and 31st March are eligible to start nursery after Easter
1st April and 31st August will start nursery in September
The headteacher decides which session a child will attend. Whilst every effort is made to take parents preferred session into account, parents must understand this is not always possible.
Schools in Doncaster admit children to reception classes in September at the start of the school year if they have had their fourth birthday on or before 31 August.
