Admissions

ADMISSION TO NURSERY

Children can be admitted to Nursery (part time – half day) at the beginning of the term after they have become three providing there is a place available.  Please note children can attend either the five morning sessions per week or the five afternoon sessions per week.

Children are admitted purely by age.  Applications for nursery places can be registered once your child is two years of age.  Application forms can be obtained at the school office.

Applying for a place at Kexborough Primary

Going to a new school is a very important step for your child. At Athersley South  we want to make the process of applying for a school place as easy as possible for all parents and carers.

You can apply online for your child’s admission but at the moment, online applications can only be made for children starting primary school for the first time
