Nursery Admissions - Current Year

Our current Nursery year group is for those children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020.

We offer morning, afternoon or all day sessions.  The session times are:-

Morning - 8.30am until 11.30am (15 hours per week)

Afternoon - 12.30pm until 3.30pm (15 hours per week)

All day – 8.30am to 3.30pm (35 hours per week)

All children are expected to attend a minimum of 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions per week.  This is covered by the free 15 hours Nursery funding which all children are entitled to.

In addition, Windhill21 offer a flexible approach which enables parents to apply for a limited number of all-day places on a paid basis.  The first 15 hours of the all day sessions is covered by the 15 hour Nursery funding.  Any additional hours are either covered by 30 hour funding (for working parents only) or charged at a cost of £5.50 per hour.

Parents will be invoiced, in advance, at the beginning of each half term for any paid sessions, and if 30-hour funding is used, for any additional hours not covered by the funding. Payment will be required at the start of each half term and no refunds will be made for sessions when your child is absent.

To apply for a place at our Nursery please telephone the school office on 01279 696850 or email

Allocation of a Nursery place is strictly subject to the applicant’s guarantee that the first 15 hours of Free Childcare Funding will be directed to this school.  This guarantee should be made on the Parent Declaration Form which will be in your welcome pack.  Details of the admission policy can be found by clicking the link below:

In the event of more applications than available places the Governing Body will maintain a continuing interest list (waiting list). These and late applications will go onto this list in a position determined by the criteria.  If a place becomes available in the school, it will be offered to the child that best meets the published admission rules at the earliest possible opportunity.
