Children can access a part-time nursery place from the start of the term after they have turned 3, or the day after their 3rd birthday, and depending on the provision and availability of places at a school. Nursery provision is non-statutory which means that parents can decide whether or not they want to take up a nursery place for their child.
You can submit an application for a place at your catchment school or any other school for which you may have a preference. It is not always possible for children to be admitted to a nursery class within the catchment area for their home address or your preferred school. If there is not a place available in the nursery provision, your child's name will be placed on a waiting list. There is no right of appeal against the refusal to offer a nursery place in a specific school.
Children attending the nursery class of a school will not have an automatic right of admission to full time education in the Reception class at the same school. Parents will need to apply for a place in Reception along with other applicants.
