Holy Rood Catholic Primary School


30 hours funded Nursery

From September 2017, many families will be eligible to apply for an additional 15 hours per week Nursery care for their child taking the total amount of Nursery care per week to 30 hours.

At Holy Rood, we recognise that this is something that is welcomed by a number of our families and that the ideal for these families and their Nursery age children is for all of these 30 hours to be spent in Nursery provision here at Holy Rood.

Following consultation with our families in school and local childcare providers, the governors have decided to trial 30 hours per week Nursery provision for the 2017/18 academic year.

It will be arranged as such:

9:00am - 12:00pm: Up to 45 pupils receiving 3 hours per day Nursery provision (15 hours per week)

12:00pm - 3:00pm: Up to 30 of the pupils who are eligible stay on for an additional 3 hours per day Nursery (an additional 15 hours per week)

After the 25th April, when parents are notified of their allocated Nursery places, we will be writing to all of our new 2017/18 nursery families to explain these arrangements in more detail.
