St Peter's Community Primary School

Our Nursery

Our Nursery team consists of highly experienced and friendly, caring staff.

The Nursery Teachers have both spent many years working in Early Years education and are supported by a skilled Nursery Practitioner and Teaching Assistants, as well as a Midday Supervisor to support lunchtimes.



Every day in Nursery is different!  Our children follow the Nursery curriculum and work on termly topics, in line with the rest of the school.  Children experience a range of learning opportunities with enjoyment and challenge in a safe, inclusive environment.

Nursery Admissions

Admission to our Nursery is free and children can start our nursery the term after they turn three years old.

You are welcome to put your child's name down for the Nursery at any time.  However, this does not guarantee that your child will have a place as spaces are allocated in accordance with our Nursery Admissions Policy approximately one year in advance.

If you would like to visit our Nursery, please contact the school to make an appointment. 

You may join our Nursery independently from the school.  Please note that a place in our Nursery does not guarantee a place in the school.

Nursery Admissions Form

30 hours entitlement

3 and 4 year olds in England are currently entitled to 15 hours of free childcare a week during term time. From September 2017, some 3 and 4 year olds will be able to access 30 hours of free childcare if their parents are working and living in England.

Parents need to register to find out if they are eligible for the 30 hours free childcare. If so, they receive a 30 hours eligibility code, which is a unique 11-digit reference number.   Parents then need to email us the following:


Your eligibility code
Your National Insurance number
Your date of birth (parent)
Your child’s date of birth

This information is required to carry out the checks. Confirmation will then be given from our nursery to secure the place. 

To find out eligibility and register for 30 hours:

This link has more detailed information about the scheme:

Every three months, parents are required to reconfirm that they remain eligible for 30 hours and Tax-Free Childcare. If a parent’s details have not changed, they only need to tick a box in their childcare service account to confirm their details remain the same.

 Please note: this information has been taken from the DfE guidance and Brighton and Hove – April & September 2017.
