Luttons CP School Announcement

Luttons Community Primary School, West Lutton is delighted to announce that they now admit children from the age of three. From September 2014, Luttons CP School offers a three hour morning session for age 3-4 year olds in their purpose-built early years classroom. Led by a highly qualified specialist early years practitioner, Luttons school offers a warm family atmosphere with a creative child-led curriculum. With a high adult to child ratio the children receive excellent care in a bright and stimulating environment.  
Alison Stephenson, Acting Head Teacher at Luttons CP said “Luttons is a small rural school, and the new nursery creates a beneficial service to the families in the area. Previously, families in the catchment area found themselves having to travel to take their children to a pre-reception provision, now they have one on their doorstep”. She continues, “With places for a capped number of children our provision also has the bonus attraction of intimate early years learning and care.”
The Government provides parents with 15 hours free childcare each week and this entitlement can be used at Luttons.  The school also offers school lunches to their nursery group at an additional small cost. Luttons School currently has vacancies for 3-4 year olds and would welcome enquiries from both inside and outside the school’s catchment area to the school office on 01944 738232.
