Applying for a Nursery Place for September 2023

Open mornings for Nursery are now happening. Book your place by calling the school office.

Is your child due to start Nursery in September 2023?

Welcome to all those children and their families who are thinking of joining Lime Walk Primary School nursery in September 2023.

The application process for a place in our Nursery opens on Monday 20th February 2023

All families with children born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 can apply for a  place.

To apply for a Nursery place for 2023/2024 you will need to apply directly to the school before Friday 24th March 2023.

The Early Years Foundation Stage at Lime Walk Primary School offers children safety and security from the moment they enter. We offer a stimulating environment with resources that are plentiful and engaging and our caring staff are committed to helping children achieve the best of their ability through an engaging curriculum full of first hand, memorable learning experiences.

Starting Nursery is an exciting time in a child’s life as they start their journey through school.  At Lime Walk Primary School our children benefit from an open plan free-flow approach so Nursery and Reception children can learn and play together to maximise learning and develop interactions with other children and adults.

The separate entrance for our Nursery children helps create the feeling of a small school ‘within a school’. Drop off and collection from the class door ensure our children feel safe in their environment and the teaching staff are always there to welcome the child and speak with parents and carers.

All Nursery children are entitled to a 15 hour funded place. Children of parents who meet additional criteria may be entitled to a 30 hour funded place (upon completion of application through www.gov.uk and presentation of an eligibility code to the school). It is the parent’s sole responsibility to complete the application and submit the eligibility code and date of birth to the school by the deadline stipulated.

All parents that are interested in a 30 hour funded nursery placement are required to indicate to the school that they will be submitting an application to www.gov.uk as they meet the criteria for 30 hours free childcare.
