How places are allocated

Places will be allocated under the following criteria: 

1st priority - Looked after children, This is a child who is in the care of the local authority

2nd priority - places will be offered to children with a sibling at Churchtown Primary School 

3rd priority - places will be offered on a first come first served basis for children turning 4 during the Nursery academic year

4th priority - places will be offered to children following their 3rd birthday 

5th priority - following the allocation of places as above and where we have further availability of sessions, parents will be offered to reserve a place for their child before their child's 15 hour universal offer begins on a termly basis or they may pay for sessions

Reservations will not be taken for the summer term until children eligible to start in the spring term have been offered the facility to reserve a place.

Applying for additional hours:

Once applications have been received and places have been allocated, there will be an opportunity to apply for additional hours within the week. These are subject to availability and are allocated on a first come first served basis. These are paid places and require a deposit.

Children who are accessing over 12 months of nursery provision will automatically hold their place for the following year. However, changes to sessions can be made if required. Children must access their full 15 hours during their preschool year; these cannot be split between providers.

Requesting a place and completing an application form does not ensure that a place may be offered.

Parents/Carers are informed in writing if a place has been allocated.

The level of fees will be set by the Local Academy Councilor’s and reviewed annually.
