Nursery Application

All 3 year olds in Trafford LA are entitled to free nursery provision for 3 hours a day or the equivalent of 15 hours a week. Therefore, in line with LA guidance, we will offer 15 hour places. Working parents (earning the equivalent of 16 hours per week at the national minimum wage) are entitled to 30 hours (15 existing hours plus an extra 15 hours if eligible) free provision per week.

For those eligible for 30 hours - The sessions run from 8.30am to 11.30am and 12.30pm and 3.30pm which covers the 30hours funding. Therefore, there is a small charge for an hour lunchtime provision of £3.00 per day/ £15.00 per week (this is in addition to the school meal charge if your child has a school lunch).

For paid top-up places, we will also offer ‘Top up’ places for parents who want their child in nursery above the 15 hours who are not eligible for the 30 hour provision. As you are entitled to 15 hours free provision, the top-up costs will include provision from 11.30am – 3.30pm ( 4 hours).   Nursery ‘top up’ sessions will work out at a cost of £16.00 a day, £80.00 for the week. It is preferable that if parents require ‘top-up’ they have it for the full week; however at the Headteacher’s discretion, ‘top-up’ sessions could be taken on a minimum of three sessions per week but they would have to be the same days each week in order that we could plan successfully for this provision. Children who stay for lunch can bring a packed lunch from home or can have a school dinner at a cost of £2.50 a day /£12.50 for the week.
