Applying for a Nursery Place

Thank you for expressing an interest in your child attending Seabridge Primary Nursery.

Following consultation with the governing body, Seabridge Primary School is now responsible for the Nursery Admissions process from 2018 onwards. Admission to Seabridge Nursery is subject to an application being made and places subject to availability. Therefore, you now need to apply directly to the school rather than through the Local Authority Admissions.

To download an application form please click here. For information on Policy and Guidance click here. Completed application forms can be emailed to [email protected] for the attention of Mrs Massey (Admissions Officer) or posted to Seabridge Primary School, Row Lane, Seabridge, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire ST5 3PJ. (Please note applications will only be accepted as per the timetable stated on the Nursery Admissions Policy And Guidance. We are unable to accept applications prior to the determined dates).

If you feel your child is not ready to start in the term following their third birthday you may wish to defer until a later date and apply within the time frames for the April and September Intake stated in the Nursery Admission Policy And Guidance available as a download above.  However, we cannot guarantee there will be a place available as more parents apply throughout the year.
15 hours funded Nursery places will be available to children in the term after a child becomes 3 years old resulting in three intakes per academic year: January, April and September.

If eligible, an additional 15 hours is available through Seabridge Care Club every afternoon from 12.00 pm – 15.00 pm.

If you are successful we will write to you by the dates stated on the Policy and procedure letter asking you to return the acceptance form along with a deposit of £50 to secure your child’s Nursery place which will only be refunded once your child has been admitted into school. You can pay your deposit by cash or by cheque made payable to Seabridge Primary School.
