  • How to Apply for Nursery Admission 2023

    Admission to the Nursery

    Children enter the Nursery in September of the school year in which they will be 4 years old.  All parents are entitled to 15 hours per week of Nursery education.

    Places will be allocated on the basis of the following criteria and in order of priority:

    1. Educational, medical or social need
    2. The child has a sibling attending Smitham Primary School
    3. Special, exceptional circumstances
    4. Geographical location to the school

    On the Nursery application form, you are able to state a preference for which sessions you would like.  The morning session is always the most popular and is regularly oversubscribed. When the number of applications exceeds the number of places available in either the morning or afternoon, we use the criteria outlined above to allocate these sessions.

    30 hours funded Nursery places for working parents

    Eligible working parents are entitled to 30 hours free Nursery care. Smitham Nursery is registered for this scheme. If we are able to offer your Nursery age child a 30 hour place it would be for 6 hours per day during term time.

    Please visit the government website: Childcare Choices to see if you are eligible.

    To be considered for a place, parents should apply directly to the school by 15th January; places cannot be guaranteed. Application forms are available from the Office or by clicking on the link below.


    Entry to the nursery does not guarantee a place at Smitham Primary School.

    See the link below for the Nursery Application form.
