Free 15 and 30 hours childcare

If you are interested in securing a place for your child in our Nursery, here is some useful information to help you.


  • We currently offer both part time and full time places (15 hours and 30 hours respectively).


  • Part time places can be taken in either the morning or the afternoon. A morning place starts at 9.00am and ends at 12.00am and an afternoon place starts at 12.30pm and ends at 3.30pm Monday to Friday. Please let us know when registering your child which you would prefer. For more information about the free 15 hours childcare please click here


  • Every three year old is eligible for 15 hours free childcare and some are eligible for 30 hours free childcare. Even if you are not eligible for the free 30 hours, you can still have a full time place in our Nursery.  


  • This currently costs £12.50 a day (or £62.50 a week). This can be paid weekly or termly. Full time children can also have a school lunch at an extra cost of £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week).

How do I apply for a place?


You can apply for a place by completing the online form below and sending it to or come into the school office and speak to a member of the team.  All we need to see is your child's original birth certificate. Children can start the term after they turn three.  Even if your child is not yet three years old, you can still put their name down on our waiting list to secure their place and we will contact you nearer the time.
