St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Nursery Admissions

Welcome to St Bernadette Nursery


Our admissions limit for our Nursery class is 52 pupils (26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon). Where there are more applications than the number of places available, places will be offered according to our oversubscription criteria which can be found in the Admissions Policy. If we are undersubscribed then we may offer full time places in accordance with our oversubscription criteria.


 If you are interested in your child attending St Bernadette Catholic Nursery School, attending our Open Day is a fantastic way for you to begin to feel our caring and loving atmosphere as we pray, work and play.

Open Morning

Friday 19th November 2021 - 9.30am to 10.30am

Please register you interest and advise how many people would be coming and which group you are interested in either Nursery or Reception by emailing Mrs Gardiner Admissions Officer:

Zoom Meeting

If you are unable to attend the Open Morning, there may be  another date available or the Headteacher Mrs Acres is hosting a zoom meeting on Tuesday 30th November at 6pm.

Again, please register your interest to the email above and further details will follow in due course.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing us at or telephoning the office on 01895 232298. We can photocopy supporting documentation  but we would prefer you  to scan or photograph the paperwork and email the paperwork directly to us.

If you intend obtaining a Certificate of Catholic Practice from Fr Matthew Heslin,  his signing dates are: Friday 19th & Monday 22nd November 11-00-12-00 in the Sacristy of St Bernadette Catholic Church.
