How do I apply for a Nursery place at Nursery Hill Primary School?
Children start nursery after their 3rd birthday, but you can apply for a Nursery place at any time. All applications must be done through the school.
We have space for 26 children. If you would like a full-time place for your child, you should say so on your application form. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be offered a full-time place. We will do all we can to be flexible to meet your preferences. Your application will be considered using the criteria set out below. We should tell you whether or not a place can be offered by the end of February.
If there are more applications for Nursery places than there are places available, the places will be offered in the following order of priority:
1. Children with a sibling in the Primary School.
2. Places requested by partner agencies eg. Social Services/ external agency referrals.
3. Other children
A few places may be reserved for children with an educational, medical or social need. The Headteacher will consider the child's needs or circumstances, supporting evidence from our professionals, and the availability of nursery classes in neighbouring schools when making a decision.
A part time place is a 3 hour session, Monday to Friday, during term time. A full-time place is up to 6 hours, Monday to Friday, during term time: this includes lunch time. Children attending full time Nursery can order a school lunch or your child may prefer to bring a healthy packed lunch.
For more information, to visit the school or to apply for a place for your child, you are welcome to contact Ms Martin at the school office, or on 02476 392318.
