Nursery Admissions

We take children into nursery the term after they are 3 and places are offered on a first come first served basis.


We run a morning and an afternoon nursery and we offer children either a morning or afternoon place dependent upon the structure of the nursery at the time of the offer. We also offer 30 hours per week of free childcare during term time to parents of 3 and 4-year-old children and who work at least 16 hours per week.


We do try to offer places to everyone, but if we are oversubscribed we may not be able to offer a place, or there may be a waiting period before a place can be offered.


To apply for a nursery place, or for further information, please contact the School Office on 01777 705017 or email


Please note that children attending nursery do not automatically qualify for a full time place at Bracken Lane Primary Academy, there are separate admission procedures for the single point of entry into main school. Please see the information above for full details.
