Change of age range at Telscombe Cliffs Community Primary School

Closed 13 Jan 2017

Opened 16 Dec 2016


Telscombe Cliffs Community Primary School currently has a third party nursery provider on site who leases space from the school to operate provision for 2 to 4 year olds.  The governing body of the school wishes to take on the leadership and management of the nursery provision by lowering its age range from 4 to11 to 2 to11.

The aim of the  proposal is to integrate, fully, nursery provision into the Early Years Foundation Stage within the school. The governing body wishes to ensure that the nursery continues to support the local area and to offer high quality early education delivered by experienced and well-trained staff across the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Why We Are Consulting

We believe the proposal to lower the age range at Telscombe Cliffs Community Primary School will help to build on work already done by the school and nursery provider, ensuring a fully integrated Early Years Foundation Stage to help secure good outcomes for all children.

It is proposed to implement the proposal on 1 April 2017.  It is not intended to implement the proposal in stages.
