Applying for a part-time (nursery/ F1) school place

The school has a thirty nine place Foundation Unit and children attend for half day sessions, 15 hours per week (3 hrs each morning) . Children are admitted into the Foundation Nursery the term after they are aged 3 in September (Autumn Term), January (Spring Term) and April (Summer Term).

Parents who have registered their child(ren) for a part-time nursery place are contacted the term before they are due to start in the Foundation Unit and arrangements made for their child to attend induction sessions.   All sessions are held in the schools Foundation Stage Unit. 

Parents/carers wishing to register their child may do so from birth by putting their child(ren) on the waiting list. To register a child for a Foundation place, please complete the application form by clicking on this link:


School's Foundation Booklet including Admission Criteria can be accessed below the Documents section below.

Even though the child may attend Crescent Primary School’s Foundation unit (F1), parents still have to apply for a full time place in school.  We currently have a planned admission number (PAN) of 60 places.  If parents live in Nottinghamshire, they must apply for a school place through Nottinghamshire County Council.  A letter will be sent from the LA (Local Authority) with details on how to apply and deadlines etc. Parents may choose any school for a full time place but standard admission criteria as above will be applied.
All Nottinghamshire schools now admit pupils at one point of entry.  Children will be admitted to full-time school in the September following their fourth birthday.  Some parents may wish to defer the start of full-time education until compulsory school age.  Parents/carers should discuss this option with the Headteacher of your preferred school or the School Admissions Team.

Parents who are considering sending their child to this school are welcome to visit by arranging a time with the Headteacher.

For our LA admission details see link below.  Tel. 0300 500 8080

An in-year application is for children requiring a school place during the school year, rather than at the usual transfer time to school. You can make an application to transfer school in-year for the current academic year (2022-2023) or for September 2023.
