IQRA Academy has a Nursery and can offer places to 52 children – 26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon. Before children are admitted in to the Nursery (usually when they are three years old) the child and parents are invited for a visit. Booklets and information are given out on that day. All children should be fully toilet trained, be able to use cutlery and dress and undress themselves.


Children will be admitted to Reception classes at the beginning of the Autumn term of the year in which they are five. Admissions to Reception are allocated by the LEA. Where the number of preferences for a school exceeds the number of places available, priority will be given to children in the following categories:

1. Children in public care (looked after children).

2. Sisters and brothers of children living at the same address, who are at present on roll at the school, and will still be attending the school at the time of admission (siblings).

3. Other children

When demand exceeds places in any of the above criteria, the distance between home and school, measured by a straight line, from the main entrance of the home to the main entrance of the school building, will be used to decide who is given a place; those living nearest being given the available places. Admissions to Years One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six, the school has a planned admission limit agreed with the council. A class will be regarded as full when it reaches 30. Any parents requesting places in years 1 to 6 must put their request to the LEA. All in year admissions to school will be managed by the LEA from September 2010.
