Applying for a nursery place
Nursery registrations may be made once your child has had their second birthday. This involves completing
- a nursery application form (please click <<here>> to open the form)
- emailing us a copy of your child’s birth certificate
You will receive information about whether your child has been offered a nursery place after Easter (usually April) in the term before they begin nursery. We offer nursery places in line with Sunderland LA nursery offer date.
When you are offered a nursery place, the letter will ask you to state your preference:
AM 8.50-11.50 each day
PM 12.20-3.20 each day
Early reds 8.50-3.20 Monday and Tuesday, 8.50-11.50 Wednesday
Late greens 12.20-3.20 Wednesday, 8.50-3.20 Thursday and Friday
In all cases, nursery places are offered for 15 hours a week. No charge is made for lunchtime care, although nursery meals require a weekly payment.
We do not normally offer early places in nursery, i.e. the term after a child is 3 years old. However, a parent may check with the school office in case there is availability.
Our admission policy for school places (from 2017) will include attendance in nursery as the third criteria:
- looked after children
- siblings (attending Fulwell Infant or Junior schools at the time the child starts school)
- nursery attendance in the year before they start school
Please complete steps 1 and 2 above to secure your registration and email the documents to
