Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy – Nursery Provision

The Archway Learning Trust (herby referred to as the Trust) in liaison the Department for Education and Nottingham City Local Authority supports Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy. Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy offers primary education from age 3 – 11.  The Academy is distinctively inclusive and it is clear about its ethos welcoming children from many different backgrounds and nationalities.

Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy offers a nursery provision for rising 3s (N1) and rising 4s (N2). Currently we are able to offer part-time places during the normal school term every week-day morning. Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy are able to offer these places to 3 and 4 year olds (please see below for further details). Funding for 3 and 4 year old children starts the term after the child turns 3. Children will not be able to start our nursery until this point.

Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy’s nursery provision is open during the normal school term and will be closed during school holidays and on INSET days. Our aim is to offer as many places to as many children as possible, whilst ensuring we maximise our capacity and encourage children that are likely to start their primary education at the Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy.  This enables us to maintain the sustainability of the nursery provision and have the maximum impact on as many children as possible.
