Fees

Details relating to fees are set out on a separate sheet. All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours free Nursery Education Grant. If your child is 2 years old or approaching 2 years just before the new term starts, you may apply to Brent Council for NEG2 (Nursery Education Grant). In that case, you will need to meet certain criteria to be eligible to receive NEG2 grant.

All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours free education per week and may be entitled to receive 30 hours free education if each parent work for at least 16 hours at the national minimum wage per week. Self-employed parents will be eligible if they meet the average earnings threshold. Parents will need to click here to check whether parents meet the eligibility criteria and if are successful, then they will be given a 11 digit validity code by HMRC which should be given to our school without any delay.

Child’s Progress

Children develop at their own pace. Development in different areas is carefully monitored by the dedicated, qualified and highly experienced teachers so that each child is encouraged onto the next stage at the appropriate time. We hold formal meetings with parents to discuss their child's progress. The parents can view their children's portfolio (Learning Journey) which is always available in school.

Mid-morning Break & Lunch

All children should only bring fruits to school for snack time and children who stay for lunch should bring a packed lunch. Milk and drinking water are available throughout the day. Please note that the school has a microwave and a fridge.

Items Required

Children should bring a spare set of clothes, nappies/pull ups and wipes (if required) to school. Each item should be named clearly and should be kept in a backpack or a cloth bag (without any drawstring and plastic bags for safety) in school.

Notice of Withdrawal

A full term's notice in writing or fees in lieu will be required in the event of a child being withdrawn from the school.

Birthdays

Parents are invited to send a cake on their child's birthday so that all the children can celebrate it together.
