Nursery Enrolment


Each nursery provision will have a defined locality which may not be the same as the primary school catchment area. Localities are agreed and registered with Education Services within Education & Children's Services. Parents of children attending nursery should be aware that a place in a local authority managed nursery class does not give children priority in gaining a place in the same school when enrolling for primary school. Entitlement to primary school is determined by the child’s home address. The designated nursery provision for this school is Guildtown Primary School Nursery.

Please note, even if your child already attends our nursery (Ante-preschool stage), you must still complete an online application form to confirm their place for the following year (Pre-school stage).  You will have the option of retaining your current placement or applying to change it.  

New applicants will need to upload a photo/scan of their child's birth certificate and may need a photo/scan/screenshot of their current council tax bill and a recent utility bill.  Returning children will not need to provide these documents unless you wish to change your placement.
