Little Saints and Nursery

Our Little Saints 2-year old provision provides both full and part-time places for up to 24 children. If you think your child may be eligible for a 15 hour funded 2 year old place, we have the facility to check in school if you are eligible. Please contact the school office if you would like to use this facility.

Our Nursery provision caters for both full and part-time places. We offer the 15 hour entitlement for parents of three and four year olds (the universal entitlement) the 30 hours funded entitlement for working parents of three and four year olds (extended entitlement) alongside paid places. Please contact the school office on 01204 333741 if you would like to enquire about a place in our Little Saints or Nursery Provision. If you require additional information about funding for your child, please visit the Bolton Start Well website.

Consultation on admission arrangements for 2025

A consultation on our admission arrangements for the September 2025 intake will take place from Friday 17 November 2023 until Tuesday 2 January 2024. We are proposing changes to how we hold waiting lists for places.  For the reception intake, if your child is refused a place at our school we will continue to automatically add your child to the waiting list and this will be maintained until 31 December 2025.


However, we are changing the way we run waiting lists for in year admissions. If you apply in year and your child is refused a place, we are proposing that you would now need to ask for your child to be placed on a waiting list.  We are also proposing that the waiting list only be held for one term at a time.  We are making these changes to provide more stability for schools and to give parents more realistic expectations about the opportunity for gaining a place from a waiting list.


As the local authority are co-ordinating consultation on our behalf, full details of our proposed admission arrangements, details on the consultation and how to respond can be viewed at: https://bit.ly/Bolton_Consultation. All comments must be received by Tuesday 2 January.
