How to Apply

Parents may register their child’s name by completing an application form available from the nursery (or available for download at the bottom of this page) and returning it with a copy of the child’s birth certificate.  Children who are three years of age by 31 August prior to entry at the start of the Autumn Term will be considered for admission.

Completion of the application form does not guarantee admission to the Nursery School. If the Nursery School is oversubscribed then the Nursery Admission Committee meet during the Spring Term and places are allocated using Lancashire County Council’s admission criteria.

Please refer to Nursery School Admissions in Lancashire, “Information for Parents” booklet, for more information.

Children are normally admitted on a part-time basis, either five mornings, 9:00 am to 12:00 noon or five afternoons, 12:45 pm To 3:45 pm which are FREE THREE HOUR SESSIONS. Additional sessions within the nursery and extended services (before school, lunches and after school) are available for a small fee.


We have limited availability for parents/carers to be able to negotiate using their child’s 15 hours per week in a flexible way.  Please speak to the headteacher if you wish to discuss your requirements.

Letters offering places will be sent out to parents.  Failure to return the acceptance form may result in the loss of the place.  Prior to accepting the offer you should be committed to your child regularly attending.  Places may be withdrawn where attendance is unsatisfactory.
