Apply for a Nursery Place

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 2020 and 31st August 2021, they are entitled to at least 15 hours of free nursery education from September 2024. Further details can be found at:

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.

We are holding Open Afternoons on Monday 5th February and Thursday 8th February between 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm.  If you would like to visit on an alternative date, please contact us.

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 22nd March 2024.  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.

We also have nursery intakes in January and April for eligible children; further information is available from the school.

If you have any other queries or would like more information on applying for a nursery place at Heron Hill School please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Carmen Roberts, Business Manager, at the school.

We would also like to send you our nursery admissions pack with further details; we look forward to hearing from you.
