Nursery Admissions

Although our nursery is a governor led setting and part of our school community, a place at the nursery does not automatically mean a place is secured at the school.

Please contact our Senior Administrator, Ms Angela Blagdon, for further information about a place at the nursery.

All parents/carers with a child attending the nursery, should apply for a school place at the correct time, following the School Place Application Guidance for the Local Education Authority.

Devon County Council

The Nursery has space for 53 children (38 places for 3 / 4 year olds and 15 places for 2 year olds) as of September 2024.
We offer both 30 hour and 15 hour free placements and also offer additional hours at a daily rate. 
Nursery Fees: From September 2023, the 2 year old room will cost £5.50 per hour and the 3 year old room will cost £5 per hour.
Application for Admission to the Nursery: Applications for Nursery places can be made by emailing .

Application Declined

Detailed information about the appeals process, including the Online Admissions Appeal Form, can be found at

  • You have the right to an admissions appeal that is independent of the school if your application for admission is refused. This is for any refusal except where a child has been permanently excluded from school twice (the most recent having been within the last 2 years). Appeals are scheduled within statutory timescales, up to 40 school days after the LA deadline for submitting appeals: 31 May 2024. Where they are submitted later, they are heard within 30 school days of being submitted. .
  • Your child’s name will automatically be added to our waiting list and will stay on there until the end of the academic year. You can reapply then if you want to remain on a waiting list.
  • If your application was for in-year admissions – that’s at any time after the start of the Reception year – then the Local Authority will consider whether your child is eligible for consideration under its Fair Access Protocol. In certain circumstances, this may mean the LA will allocate a place in a school even when it would otherwise be full. You can speak to the LA Admissions Team about this; normally this would only be for a child who doesn’t already have access to education and where there is no reasonable alternative. This Protocol does not apply for the normal round of admissions to the start of the Reception year.
