FS1 Admission (Nursery) and 30 Hours Provision

All 3 year olds are entitled to 15 hours provision, this is currently offered as a morning session in our Pre-School room depending on pupil numbers and staffing. 
Working families with children aged 3 and 4 may be eligible for 30 ‘free’ hours of early education and
childcare. At Burradon we offer this service directly from our EYFS unit within the school for children in their Nursery year (the academic year they turn 4). If you are eligible for the additional 15 hours and wish to access this, you will bring your child to school in the morning and they remain at school for the full day.
Families are eligible for 30 ‘free’ hours if:

  • both parents are working (or sole parent if in a lone parent family);
  • each parent has a weekly minimum income equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage;


  • neither parent has an income of over £100,000 per year

There is a childcare calculator available online to check eligibility

Manager) via the school office.
