Children will be admitted to the Nursery part-time, in September of the academic year in which they become four. There are 26 part-time places in Nursery with a ratio of 1:13 led by a qualified Teacher. We work in partnership with our Governor-led Nursery, Acorns who can provide additional Nursery places in our setting in a ratio of 1:8 as well as full wrap around day care. The Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school is 60. Children will be admitted into Reception in September of the academic year in which they turn five.

Please note that admission to Perton Primary Academy Nursery does not automatically guarantee a place in Reception. Applications are submitted Online to SCC. Transfer to Middle School is also subject to application.

Prospective parents are welcome to contact school on 01902 742686 to make an appointment to view or to visit on an Open morning, which is held each half-term.

Once a place has been allocated we inform parents of induction arrangements to ensure children feel happy and ready to start school. We want the entry to school to be a calm and positive experience for you and your child.

Parents moving into the area are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school and meet the Principal. Parents complete an in-year transfer form when seeking a place.
