 Nursery Admissions Run Directly by the School

Nursery Admissions

The School is responsible for all nursery admissions ourselves. We have two thriving nursery classes (26 to morning Nursery and 26 to afternoon Nursery) ;

  • Morning Nursery: 8:30 - 11:30
  • Afternoon Nursery: 12:30 - 15:30
When is a child eligible for Nursery?

Children are eligible for Nursery the term after their third birthday, and we have intakes in September, January and April. Make sure you apply a term before their 3rd birthday, however we accept applications from birth, we will keep it on file until we are reviewing admissions for the term they would be starting in.

How do I apply for Nursery?

You can download and print an application form at the bottom of this page or apply online below.

Please download our Admission policy from the Admission Overview page

 
Foundation Nursery Places (Church Places)
If you are a regular church goer, you maybe eligible to apply for one of our Foundation Places. To apply for a Foundation Place please make sure you also download at the bottom of this page the form "Nursery Application Foundation Place Supplementary form" as well. This supplementary form cannot be completed online, as you need to get section 5 filled out and signed by your Priest or Minister and return it to the school directly.

30-hour free childcare for Nursery Age Children 

We currently offer a limited number of 30-hour free childcare places for nursery age (ages 3-4) children only. These are offered on a first come, first served basis, or when spaces are limited, applying our admissions policy criteria.

Please contact the school office for availability on Phone: 0208 540 3004 or Email: office@allsaints.merton.sch.uk 

How do you apply for the 30 hours free childcare?

You can apply for the 30-hour scheme on the Government website here.

Are you eligible for 30 hours fee childcare?

If you are eligible, you will be sent a code for 30 hours free childcare. You must bring this code to the school office along with your National Insurance number and child's date of birth. Once we have verified your code, you will be offered a place (subject to availability). We can accept many different child care voucher schemes, so please contact sbm@allsaints.merton.sch.uk for further information. 

If you are not eligible for 30 hours can you self-fund?

If you are not eligible for the government 30 hours free childcare, you may choose to self-fund a space. Your child will receive their 3 hours of government funded ‘free’ nursery provision each day and then the cost of 4 additional self-funded hours (to make up to a full day of provision) is £32 per day. Please note, if you choose not send your children in due to sickness, or term-time holiday (which is discouraged), charges do still apply. 

The availability of self-funded spaces depends, as families eligible for the 30 hours take priority. Contact the school office for further information or if you want to know which childcare voucher schemes, we accept email sbm@allsaints.merton.sch.uk

Nursery Spaces available

In Nursery we can accommodate up to 26 children in both the morning nursery and afternoon nursery.  However, we offer a combination of both part-time and full-time places (all term time only)

  • Part Time Spaces - Children with part-time places will attend either in the mornings (from 8.30am to 11.30am Monday to Friday) or in the afternoons (12.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday).
  • Full Time Spaces - Children with full time places will attend from 8.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday and must bring a nut-free healthy packed lunch. There is a cost of £6 per child per day who is offered a full time place.

Places will typically, but not always, be made available as follows:

  • 8 full time 30 hours places
  • 22 morning places
  • 22 afternoon places

The school reserves the right to offer unused spaces to families requesting an alternative session, to maximise capacity in the nursery e.g. if we have unused full time places we may convert these to half day sessions or if we have unused half day places we make convert these to full time places.

When applying parents may list their session preferences in priority order.  We will use our Admissions Criteria to rank all applicants and work from the top of the list downwards to allocate all available places.  This means that a family applying for a full day place may be offered a half day place if all the full day places have been allocated by the time we reach their position in the ranked applicant list.
