New to Early Years 2023

Welcome to Arundel Court Primary Academy & Nursery

We want to wish you all a very warm welcome to Arundel Court primary Academy & Nursery. As we look forward to getting to know our new families joining our school community, and as we begin our transition activities for this year, we are once again going to use this page as a hub to hold all the information that you need as you prepare for September and your children starting school. Many of you will already have children in our school nursery and so will be familiar with some information about the school, but for some of you this will be the beginning of your journey at Arundel Court Primary Academy & Nursery. We hope that, whichever the case, you will find this page informative and helpful.


Please rest assured that we have a robust transition.
