You can register your interest in our Nursery by completing our Waiting List Form and returning it to us at email@example.com
Paper copies are available upon request or can be collected at any time from the Nursery. Once this for has been received a member of staff will be in touch to discuss options with you.
Once your child is ready to start nursery and has accepted their nursery place we will contact you to discuss your requirements in more detail. Depending on when your child starts, there may be an Open Evening for you to attend to meet the staff and find out more about what your child will learn. Every child will be invited to some Stay and Play sessions where they can attend to play in the Nursery and meet their key worker. We advise that parents stay for this first visit and then if your child settles well, they can stay for the second one without a parent present. You will also need to complete an admission pack which gives us detailed information about your child, as well as important information such as medical needs, allergies etc.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
The majority of Children with Special Educational Needs can be supported at any nursery school, nursery unit or Early Years setting. We pride ourselves at Tudhoe Moor Nursery School for being an inclusive school and welcome all children regardless of any additional needs. If you have any concerns about your child or how we can best meet their needs at Nursery, please speak to our SENDCo Mrs Julia Hymers.
Nursery provision is also available in certain Special Schools. Support for individual pupils is determined by Durham Local Authority through Education, Health and Care Assessment.
The Durham Local Authority Admissions criteria stipulate that children are offered a Nursery place according to their age. However, children identified with Special Educational Needs are given priority irrespective of when they have their third birthday.
If you feel that your child has additional needs that we need to consider and that may entitle them to be given priority during the admission process, please let us know when you submit their application form.
Please view or download the School Admission Policy, SEN Policy and Equal Opportunities Policy which can be found in our School Policies section.
If you have any questions about SEND please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
