Nursery Admissions

Leavening Primary School offers a 16-place nursery setting. We are able to take nursery children the full term after their 3rd birthday.  If you would like to enquire about a nursery place, please contact the school office.

Nursery children are entitled to 15 universal free hours.
A morning session is 3 hours (9am-12 Midday). A full day is 5.25 hours.
Any additional hours attended above and beyond those would be chargeable (£5/hr) and added to the child’s ParentPay account. 

The lunch hour of nursery care (12pm-1pm) cannot be included in the free/funded hours.  

Acorns children are welcome to have a hot school lunch (£3 each). If children wish to bring a packed lunch, then only the £2.50 lunch hour of nursery care charge would apply. 

Nursery provision is available everyday except Tuesdays (this is under review by the Governing Body).
