Alexandra Primary School

Applying for Nursery


Thank you to the parents and carers who attended our tours this year. Tours for entry to nursery in September 2023 have now concluded.

The Achieving for Children website provides you with full information about the different types of nursery education available as well as when and how to apply for a nursery place. 

Starting Nursery in September 2023

Children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020. Our nursery has one intake per year in September and your child must be three years old by 31st August to be considered. 

Alexandra Primary School will be offering 78 Universal Entitlement places (15 hours per week).  These will be Monday – Friday, 39 morning places 8:45-11:45 and 39 afternoon places 12:30 – 15:30).  There is a space on our application form to indicate your preferred session; although this is for our information and cannot be guaranteed.

Extended Nursery Sessions

Alexandra Primary School is keen to offer as many places as possible to local children who want a place at our nursery for 15 hours per week (the ‘universal entitlement’).  It therefore does not set aside any extended nursery session places.  However, if we discover that we have spare places in either the morning or afternoon nursery sessions once we have satisfied our universal entitlement demand, we will then offer these spare places as extended sessions.  These extended sessions begin from the end of September, once all nursery children have settled into school. Please download the Extended nursery sessions Sept 2023 document for more details.

Applications for Alexandra Primary School Nursery are dealt according to the rules stipulated on the Achieving for Children website.

The closing date for Nursery applications is Friday 4th March 2023. Any applications after this will be considered as late applications and will join a waiting list.

To apply for a nursery place, please fill in this form or contact the school directly for a paper application form. Please mention any siblings who will be attending Alexandra Primary School in September 2023.

Please contact Sarah Walters in the school office if you have any queries or need any assistance.​
