Applying for a Nursery Place

Is your child due to start Nursery?

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

You can apply for a nursery school place for September 2024, if your child was born between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021.

To apply for a Nursery place you will need to apply directly to the school.

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.

We would love to welcome you to look around our school.

For more information please call the school office or email.
