Following the publication of the new School Admissions Code 2021 , the governing body of St Chad’s CE Nursery & Infant School are currently consulting on the school admissions policy for September 2023.

The consultation period is ongoing and will run until 7th January 2022. During this time, individuals and organisations are invited to express their views and any concerns about the proposed admissions policy for St Chad’s CE Nursery & Infant School.
