Welcome to all new visitors and future parents!
At Goldfield we allocate 5 sessions per week, either morning or afternoon. There is a single point of entry in September with the youngest children (ie birth dates March-Aug) attending morning sessions and the older children in the afternoon sessions.
Two Nursery sessions:
8.45 – 11.45 am
12.15 – 3.15 pm
We look forward to meeting you!

When will my child start primary school?
All primary schools offer children a full-time place at the start of the September term in the academic year of their 5th birthday. There is a short transition period of mornings only and then the children attend full time.
Please apply for a place for your child in the normal way and by the closing date.

Please note that attendance at a nursery does not guarantee a place in the reception class of a school. You must make a new application for a place in a reception class even if your child is currently attending the school's nursery class. Every year some children who have been allocated a place in a school's nursery class fail to get a place in the reception class. This is because there are more applications for reception places than nursery places, and all schools must ensure that their admission arrangements do not discriminate against families who were unable to take up a place in the nursery class or, for example, move into an area after nursery places have been allocated.
Linked Infant and Junior Schools
Most junior schools prioritise applications from pupils already attending their 'linked' infant school. You should check the rules of the junior schools you are applying for in the directory section of the 'Applying for a school place' book. A list of community or voluntary controlled 'linked' infant and junior schools can be found in this book.
