Admission into the Nursery September 2024

The application closing date is Friday 1st March 2024 with offers to be sent on or before Friday 3rd May 2024. If you have missed the deadline and would like to be considered for the waiting list as a late applicant, please email admissions.hisn@hpp.school with details.

The Nursery has a total of 52 places - 26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon session.  Children must have turned 3 by 31st August 2024 for admission in September 2024.

There is no specific catchment area for Nursery and if there are more applications than there are places available, places will be offered in the following order of priority:

1) Places will be offered firstly to looked after children. Applications made under this criterion must be accompanied by details of circumstance and professionally supported evidence (e.g. from a social worker)

2) Places will then be offered in cases of exceptional family, social or medical need (which must be described on the application and verified by professionally supported evidence) that makes the school concerned the most suitable one for the individual child.

3) Places will then be offered to children who have a brother or sister (sibling), including an adopted, foster, half or step brother or sister, living at the same address and attending Reception to Year 6 at the same school (or paired junior school) at the time of admission.

4) Places will then be offered to children of members of staff who have been employed at the school for two or more years at the time of application and will continue to be employed at the school at the point of admission or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

5) The remaining places will be offered to children who live nearest to the school, measured by the shortest route by road or maintained footpath from the property to the nearest pedestrian school gate used by the relevant year group. Accessibility of private or public transport will not be considered. All distances will be measured using the Council’s geographical information system. Note: paths through car parks, cemeteries, golf courses and other enclosed spaces will not be used.

Our school Nursery will provide 15 hours of funded term time childcare per week - either 3 hours every weekday morning between 8.30am and 11.30am or 3 hours every weekday afternoon between 12.30pm and 3.30pm.   

Please note that when applying for a Nursery place, whilst we ask for your preference of morning or afternoon sessions and try to accomodate this where possible, sessions are allocated by the school according to other factors to ensure we have a balance across our Nursery, such as birth month and additional educational needs.

Please see the Parent Guide below as this will give information regarding applying for Nursery including important dates when these are available.
