Admissions criteria

Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, in order of priority:

  1. Children in Public Care – children taken into Public Care via section 20 or 38 of the Children’s Act. Looked after children or children who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements order, or special guardianship order.
  2. Where the child has a sibling currently attending Fielding Primary School and the sibling will still be in attendance at applicant’s admission. Sibling refers to: brother or sister, half-brother of sister, adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the child of the parent/carer’s partner, and in every case, the child should be living in the same family unit at the same address.
  3. Children returning to Fielding nursery for a 2nd year.

  4. Children taking the highest number of hours per week.


Personal hygiene

As children grow and develop they become increasingly independent and confident in everyday tasks such as toileting and hand washing and if your child is joining us in nursery for September please encourage and nurture this independence by offering encouragement and showing them what to do. If your child is experiencing toileting issues please ensure you let us know as it may be necessary for a care plan to be put into place.
