Nursery Admissions - September 2019
We have two nursery classes at Windhill21 – morning and afternoon. The session times for each class are as follows:
Morning - 8.30am until 11.30am
Afternoon - 12.30pm until 3.30pm
Each nursery class has places for 26 children.
In addition, we will be offering a more flexible approach which will enable parents to apply for a limited number of all-day places in our Nursery on a paid basis. Alternatively, it will be possible to use 30-hour funding vouchers that you may have to help towards the cost.
This would provide the opportunity for your child to attend from 8.30am to 3.30pm. The sessions would be led by our qualified teacher and supported by our existing Nursery staff, providing continuous high-quality provision throughout the day.
The cost of these sessions is currently £20 per session (equivalent to £5 per hour). Payment will be required at the start of the term and no refunds will be made for sessions when your child is absent. There may be a small increase in this cost following the annual review of charges which will take place by the end of February 2019.
Windhill21 has one intake into its nursery classes which is the September following a child’s third birthday. Entry into the nursery class in September 2019 will be for those children born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016.

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.
