Applying for a Nursery Place at
Heron Hill Primary School
All children are eligible to at least 15 hours of free funded nursery education from the term after their third birthday. If you live in Cumbria and your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, they are entitled to at least 15 hours of free nursery education from September 2020. Further details can be found at: www.cumbria.gov.uk/schooladmissions
Our nursery provision has changed with the introduction of the 30 hours free funded nursery entitlement (for parents who meet the eligibility criteria). We have therefore reviewed our nursery grant provision policy to reflect these changes and this has resulted in more flexibility in the nursery provision we are offering to all parents (see Heron Hill Policy for Nursery Grant Provision).
We would like to invite you to visit our nursery before making your application to meet our friendly staff and take the opportunity to view our exciting and rich environment. If you would like to visit the nursery before making your application there will be an Open Morning on Wednesday 29th January between 9.00 am and 11.00 am and Open Afternoons on Wednesday 29th January and Wednesday 12th February between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm. If you are unable to attend on any of these dates, please contact the school office (01539 721276) to arrange a convenient nursery visit.
If you would like to apply for a place at Heron Hill Nursery please complete the application form and return it to the school, in person. The closing date for September applications is 27th March 2020. You should also bring proof of your child's date of birth such as a birth certificate or passport and of your home address eg recent utilities invoice. The school office is open between the hours of 8.30 am and 4.30 pm (school is closed for the Christmas holidays from 20th December to 6th January).
We also have nursery intakes in January and April for eligible children; further information is available from the school.
