We accept up to 16 children in our Early Entitlement provision. Children can attend for four sessions per week of 2.5 hours each.

We have an intake in January and one after Easter. All applications must be made through the Flintshire Early Entitlement website.

If the number exceeds our limit in January and after Easter, we will supply details to the LEA who will use their computer software to inform us of who is the closest to school and administer all admissions. 

The deadline date for Early Entitlement admissions will be the penultimate Friday of the autumn term for January admissions and the penultimate Friday of the spring term for Easter admissions.
