Nursery Class Monday 16  January 2023 Friday 10 March 2023

Parents wishing to apply for a place at St Andrew’s School Nursery in September 2023 must use the Admission to Nursery Class 2023-24 form.  The form will be available from the school office and on this web page from November 2022.  Please complete and return the form to the School by Friday, 10 March 2023 either by hand, email or post.

Our Nursery class takes place every morning from 9 am to 12 noon, term time only, in our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. The School has places for 26 children in the Nursery class.  The offer of a Nursery place will be ONLY for a full time place 3 hours per day, 5 days per week, 38 weeks a year (Term time only).

We have one intake into our Nursery class which is the September following a child’s third birthday.  Entry into the Nursery class in September 2023 will be for those children born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020.

We offer 15 hours Free Early Education (3 hours per day 5 days per week) and do not offer the additional 15 hours to provide 30 Hour Childcare provision. (Much Hadham Pre School – adjacent to the school site – is offering the additional 15 hours and will collect children from our Nursery).

Allocation of a place at St Andrew’s CE Primary School and Nursery is strictly subject to the applicant’s guarantee that the first 15 hours of Free Childcare Funding will be directed to this school.  Without this there can be no funding for a place in the Nursery.

An offer of a Nursery place does not guarantee an offer of a Reception place.  The process of applying for a Reception school place happens one year later.

There is no right of appeal against non admission to the Nursery class.
