Nursery Admissions

We have one intake for Nursery; all children start in September.

The nursery admission intake is no longer co-ordinated by HCC but an on-line system has been developed which each school will use to make the local co-ordination as simple as possible.  Please note that parents will still need to apply for a Reception place even if their child is admitted to our Nursery class.  Entry into our Nursery class does not guarantee you entry into our Reception class

Please read the Nursery Admissions Arrangements Sept 2021 document below for more information. 
Nursery Admission Applications 2021

Please note:  There are no other supplementary information forms.
Our Early Years Team have made a welcome video that will give you an insight into early life at Northgate Primary School.  We hope you enjoy it!

Our Nursery class takes place every morning and afternoon, term time only, in our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit.  Northgate Primary School has places for 5 mornings, 5 afternoons or 2 1/2 days (Monday all day, Tuesday all day and Wednesday morning or Wednesday afternoon, Thursday all day and Friday all day) in the Nursery class. Full day sessions will now be extended to allow for a lunch break. This will mean your child will be in school for 16.5 hours per week, rather than the usual 15 hours. Due to the current pressures on staffing and costs as a result of Covid-19, we are regrettably unable to cover this cost internally. Whilst you will continue to receive the early years funding of 15 hours, in order to cover the additional 1.5 hours per week, we will need to request a contribution of £7.50 per child per week, payable in advance half termly.

Northgate Primary School has one intake into its Nursery class which is the September following a child's third birthday.  Entry into the Nursery class in September 2021 will be for those children born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018. 

Northgate Primary School offers 15 hours Free Early Education.  The additional 15 free hours can also be sourced on site at Northgate and is provided by Little Ladybirds Pre-School.  Northgate Nursery and Little Ladybirds Pre-School work as a team and accommodation for both is linked through the same corridor and entrance.

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 application form (available on our website).
