Applying for Nursery

Find out how to apply for a nursery place at a Sutton Community school. Each Sutton primary school, with the exception of Stanley Park Infants' School and Bandon Hill Primary Wood Field, has its own nursery.

There are 25 community schools in Sutton that each has a nursery. If you are applying for a nursery place at a Community school, you can do so online from 1 September 2013. You have until 15 January 2014 to apply.

If you are applying for a nursery place at one of the six Voluntary-Aided schools or the single Academy in Sutton, you must apply directly to the school, as the process is different. Contact these schools for details.

Sutton school nurseries offer 15 hours per week nursery provision which is free. For further information about nursery provision in Sutton and the funding that is available, please contact the Family Information Service.

Before you apply, you are strongly advised to:

1. Read about when your child can start nursery
2. Download and read the pdf icon starting nursery guidance booklet [340kb]

Please note: admission to a nursery class does not guarantee a place in the reception class of the same school. You will need to make a separate application which will be considered against the admission criteria in place at the time.

Once you have reviewed the guidance material, you are ready to apply.
