Children are entitled to 15 free hours of Nursery provision per week. We offer free part-time and flexi time Nursery places with an option to pay a top-up fee to increase to a full-time place (details of the top-up fees are available from the school office). Free full-time places are offered only to children who meet certain criteria, details of which are given on our application form, also available from the school office.

Some FREE full-time places are available if children meet the following criteria;

  1. Children who are looked after, or who have an allocated social worker who has written support of the need for a full-time place as part of the Child’s Plan at that school.
  2. Children who are recommended a full-time place by a Team Around the Child (TAC), Locality or Disability Panel.
  3. Children in circumstances where the Headteacher considers a full-time place should be provided. To ensure quality across the borough the following criteria must be met first:
    1. children who are eligible for free school meals or newly arrived or asylum seeker
