Please read our "Nursery Information" before completing the application form.

        Nursery Information

        Nursery Application form

All parents are entitled to 15 hours of free Early Years education for their child each week (i.e. 5 sessions of 3 hours per day for 38 weeks).  Some parents may be eligible for 30 hours of free Early Years education.  Eligibility can be checked by applying via the Government website below once your child has turned 3 (please do not do this before your child's 3rd birthday as it will give an ineligible result).

        Eligibility for 30 hours free childcare

For children attending the nursery 30 hours a week (i.e. both sessions with a break for lunch) we make a small charge for lunchtime supervision. 

If you are not eligible for 30 hours funding but wish for your child to take up a 30 hour place, you must be prepared to pay for the additional 15 hours a week. 

Details of our Nursery charges for 30 hour places can be found by clicking on the "Nursery Information" link above.

The statutory right to appeal does not apply to admission to nursery.

Please note, a place in nursery DOES NOT guarantee that your child will be admitted to the main school.  You will need to apply for a Reception place between September 1st and January 15th, the year before your child is due to start school.
