If all children cannot be offered a place using the above criteria, the highest priority in each category will be given to the children living nearest the nursery. This distance will be measured on a straight line ‘crow fly’ basis, using Ordnance Survey data. The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property. Children who do not get a place will then be put on a ‘waiting list’ and will be contacted as and when a place becomes available.

School admissions will continue to be held by the Local Authority and Arden Grove Infant and Nursery School cannot guarantee a school place for any child attending its nursery
