How nursery places are allocated

Admissions policy

The allocation of nursery places is determined by our admissions policy. This sets the priorities for the allocation of places based on the child's needs. 

Applications submitted by 28 February are considered for the year ahead. Offer of place letters for August 2020 will be posted to parents late May 2020.

Outwith the annual allocation of spaces, late applications and/or transfers will be considered on a regular basis.
