In some cases, depending on numbers of admissions, additional places may be offered in January of the following year for those children who have turned three between 1st September and 31st December. A part-time Nursery place will be funded by the Government for every child from the start of the school term after their third birthday. All 3 and 4-year-olds are eligible for up to 15 hours a week of free nursery provision from the term after their 3rd birthday.

Reception aged children or above will not be permitted to remain in, or apply for, a repeat year in our Nursery.
