Question 12: How does my child get a place to Becket Primary School?
Nursery: Children begin Nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday. They are entitled to 15 hours of a funded placement. This place is flexible, either every morning, every afternoon or a more flexible offer over 2 days (which currently is available on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning). From 2017, these 15 hours of funding will be increased to 30 hours. Application forms can be obtained from the school office.
School: All admissions to school are made through the Local Authority procedures. Information on this process can be obtained from:
Admissions, Children and Young People’s Directorate, Derby City Council, Council House, Corporation Street, Derby DE1 2FS (Tel: 01332 642730; Email: primary firstname.lastname@example.org)
For children starting in Reception Class, all applications must be submitted to the Local Authority by their prescribed application date.
