Why should I choose Meanwood?
Don’t just take our word for it!
“I feel that my child’s needs are constantly being considered on an individual basis”
“Amazing teachers who always appear happy and interested in what each child is doing or saying.”
“The school is fabulous”
“Meanwood now has a strong emphasis on children’s emotional and mental wellbeing along side their academic education”
“My children are relatively new here but they love it. Just wish we moved sooner.”
Meanwood Nursery is well established and provides an opportunity for children to have a seamless transition into the main school.
Do I have to pay for nursery?
As we are open for a total of 15 hours, everyone can access our nursery for free.
In Rochdale we provide free early education places up to 15 hours per week for all 3 and 4 year-olds, from the term after their third birthday.
If we have more applications than places
If the number of applicants is less than the number of places, the school will admit all applicants. However, if places are oversubscribed, these admissions criteria will be used:
Where a child has an Education Health Care Plan naming Meanwood Nursery, the child will be allocated a place before any other places are allocated.
The remaining applications are considered in the following order of priority:
1. Children in the Care of a Local Authority or other exceptional welfare needs (request must be supported by a social worker or other professional.)
2. Children with medical or developmental needs or a disability. Evidence of additional needs must be provided by a health care professional who is currently working with the child, e.g. Speech and Language Therapist, GP or Health Visitor (using information from other health professionals such as a paediatrician.)
3. Children with older siblings attending the school.
4. Proximity to school.
Children who are not offered a place to start will be put on a waiting list and whenever a place becomes available, this will be allocated according to the above criteria
