APPLICATIONS FOR NURSERY SEPTEMBER 2022: 15 HOURS ENTITLEMENT AND 30 HOURS FREE CHILDCARE

The Governing Body has responsibility for admissions to our Nursery Class. Currently all children aged 3 & 4 year old are entitled to up to 15 hours of free childcare and early education a week for up to 38 weeks a year.  From September 2017 the Government increased the entitlement from 15 to 30 hours per week for working parents who meet the eligibility criteria.  All children will remain eligible for the existing universal 15 hour free entitlement offer.

The Department for Education has produced an information sheet which can be accessed below.  There is also a useful table which can be found below to further explain the process.

You will be also able to find out more information at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk If you are eligible you will receive a code which you must give to the school to be validated. Please be aware that this code needs to be re-validated every three months. Members of the school's administrative team will be here to help support you in the process once your child has been offered a place in Nursery. 

For further information regarding applications for our Nursery for September 2021 please contact the school office.

In line with our admission procedure, all parents seeking a place for their child at our Main School are required to complete our Main In-Year Application Form (S.I.F.). These forms are available below or from our school office.  Please submit our In-Year application, together with relevant paperwork, to the school.
