To enable us to allocate places fairly we will:
* For catchment area please refer to the Dorset For You website guidance for Stalbridge Primary School by clicking on the button below.
* Attending Stalbridge Pre-School does not guarantee a place at Stalbridge Primary School (Please refer to the schools admission policy at https://www.dorsetforyou.com/school-admissions by clicking on the button below.
* A Birth Certificate and proof of address will be requested prior to a place being allocated.
Extra sessions/changes in sessions:
Where places are available a form for extra sessions will be sent to parents/carers for children to increase sessions. Extra sessions will be allocated in line with the above criteria. Hours above the 15 hours entitlement will be offered if places are under-subscribed and may mean that these places are only available at the beginning of the school year when the number on the register is lower.
You are welcome to add your child to the waiting list for future extra sessions i.e the following term, but this does not guarantee that they will be available at that time, It would not be financially viable for the Pre-School to hold open sessions for children intending to join or increase at a future date, if other children want to take up the sessions prior to that time.
If you wish to change your child’s hours after they have started a request should be made in writing to the Manager, we will do our best to accommodate you, but it may not always be possible.
Extra hours will not be offered until any outstanding fees have been paid.
There may be times when you are asked to consider changing your child’s hours, this may be to move into a full day when eligible for funding to free up morning hours for younger children, you are not obliged to accept this.
