Each admission year, the Local Authority produces a ‘Guide to Parents Admission to Schools’.

Braeburn Primary and Nursery Academy provides nursery provision of 15 hours per week. If you would like to check whether you are eligible to receive the extended entitlement of 30 hours per week, please visit: http://www.northyorks.gov.uk/article/33505/30-hours-extended-early-years-entitlement-for-eligible-three-and-four-year-olds
Children are admitted to Reception at the start of the Autumn Term of the school year during which they will be five years of age. In the Summer Term before children start Reception there is an induction meeting for all new parents.
You need to be aware that if your child attends Nursery that this does not guarantee your child a place in Reception.
