Nursery (Lower Foundation)

We offer Nursery for children who are 3 years of age, including 30 hour provision.

The school has a 52 place nursery.  Therefore a maximum of 52 universal places will be offered.

The school will offer maximum 26 of these places for the extended offer.  This number may change at the discretion of the headteacher but only after all children have been allocated a place for the extended entitlement.

We offer places for 3 and 4 year olds through our nursery.  All nursery age children are entitled to 15 hours provision as a morning, afternoon or 2.5 days a week session.  Some children will be entitled to 30 hours of funded provision; this is dependent on meeting criteria set out by government.  Please visit to see if you are eligible.

A child can be admitted to early year’s provision the term after their 3rd birthday.
