  • "Looked after children", that is children who are in the care of the local authorities are defined by section 22 of the Children Act 1989 and who are confirmed by that local authority to be expected to be still in public care when due to be admitted to the Nursery
  • Exceptional medical or social reasons, which should be supported by a qualified professional directly involved with the child and will be considered by the authority's medical or psychological advisers.  Only where it is agreed that the admission to that Nursery is essential will an exception to the general policy be made.   
  • Siblings, with preference to the older children according to their date of birth, preference will only be given to those with siblings who will still be in attendance at the date of admission
  • All other applicants, with preference to older children according to their date of birth and distance from home to school.
