We have a Foundation Stage Unit for pupils of nursery and reception age. The admission number for Nursery aged pupils is 39 part time places. The nursery sessions is from 9am – 12 noon

The admission figure for Reception aged pupils is 45.

Although the nursery and reception pupils share the same facilities they are taught in their own groups. There is a high level of adult support given to this age group of pupils as we feel that it is extremely important to give the children the best foundations for their future learning.

Parents considering sending their children to Emmaville are warmly invited to contact school to arrange a visit. The visit will give prospective parents the opportunity to meet members of staff and discuss their child’s individual needs. They will also be able to view all the facilities we can offer and collect a school prospectus.

For a place within the Nursery class please contact the school to request a Nursery application pack or use the link below. All Nursery application forms should be returned to the school. A nursery aged child may be able to start in the unit the term after their third birthday but this will be dependent upon the availability of places. We encourage parents to register their child's details at the school after their second birthday, in order to avoid disappointment.

Although parents may register children at any time, places in reception class will not be allocated until April prior to starting in September. The allocation process for reception aged pupils is completed by Gateshead Authority. Where places are oversubscribed, the LA admissions procedure applies, with places being allocated according to established criteria.
