The Nursery offers free part-time places for children the term after they have reached their 3rd birthday. We offer 15 hours per week; these can be taken as 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions. Please put names on the waiting list for Nursery when your child is two.

We now offer extra sessions parents can pay for.  Each session costs £10, so a full week would be £50.  Please ask at the Office if you require further information.

School is offering the free 30 hours.  Please contact school if you think you are eligible for this.



Blackburn with Darwen Local Authority manages primary admissions.  We have places for 30 children in Reception.
