Provision Available


From September 2018 our Nursery cohort increased to 52 spaces.


We have one intake for Nursery in September and your child will attend either a morning or afternoon session.  A preference may be expressed on the application form but this is not guaranteed.


Nursery session times are term time Monday to Friday 8:50am to 11:50am and Monday to Friday 12:20pm to 3:20pm, totalling 15 hours of free early education.  We recommend attending five sessions per week.


There are a limited number of wraparound care places available and this provision can be either funded by 30 hour funded provision and/or fee paying.  The times of the two sessions available for this provision are: Monday to Friday 11:45am to 1:15pm or 11:45am to 2:45pm.  Requests for this provision should be indicated on the Nursery application form.  Wraparound care provision is not guaranteed. You will be contacted as soon as possible by Pre-School to confirm arrangements.  Should you have any questions regarding the provision (not to request a place) please contact  Millfield Pre-School direct in the first instance.  They can be contacted via the School Office.


Flexible wrap around care provision is also available as follows and enquiries for these places should be made direct to Millfield Pre-School.  They can be contacted via the School Office:


  • Breakfast Club (from 8:00am Monday to Friday)
  • Fun Club (3:15pm to 5:15pm Monday to Thursday and 3:15pm to 4:15pm on a Friday)
  • Holiday Club (during school holidays)
Application Form

A paper copy of the application form may also be obtained from the School Office.  Completed forms must be returned to Millfield First & Nursery School and an acknowledgement of receipt obtained.  Being offered a Nursery place is not a guarantee for obtaining a Reception place.  A separate application must be made at the appropriate time for a Reception place.


Oversubscription Criteria


Places will be allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria if there are more applications made than spaces available. 

Additional Information


Any application received after the the closing date of 15.01.21 at 3:00pm will be treated as a late application and processed as a late application. 


Places for late applications will be allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria if there are spaces available once on-time applications have been allocated. 


We will hold a waiting list and places will be allocated, if and when available, according to the oversubscription criteria against the waiting list at the time a place becomes available.


We will use Google maps as a measuring tool to measure home-school distance measurements as measured in a straight line.


There is no appeal procedure for Nursery admissions and, therefore, any complaints would be managed using the complaints procedure.


Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance with your application.


Further Information


Visits to our Nursery are most welcome and can be arranged by contacting the School Office on 01763 271717.

We are currently reviewing the best possible way to share our school with prospective parents - particularly for 2021 admissions. As details are arranged these will be advertised on our website.
