Admissions

Granville Plus Nursery School is a maintained nursery school, funded by the government via Brent Children and Young People Department, and for the under threes by parental fees and Nursery Education Grants for disadvantaged 2 Year Olds and for 3 year olds. The School also has funded places for children with additional needs. 

The School has 40 full-time equivalent places for children aged 3 to 4 years, and 41 places for children aged 6 months to 3 years.

Our opening hours can support parents who work or study full time. 

How to apply

Parents can come into school to obtain the application form from the front office, for a Nursery School or Rainbow (up to threes) place. Children can be placed on the application list at any time. 

Brent Local Authority sets an admissions timetable each year for the Nursery School. Children who are on the list by the cut off date will be considered first, using Brent’s Admissions Policy. This date is usually in the January before September entry. 

Extended day places are allocated according to need. Parents are asked to provide proof of their work or study, and an appropriate package of hours is agreed. 

Decisions on admissions are made using the following criteria: 

• children “looked after” by the LA 

• children defined as “in need”, and referred by other agencies 

• siblings, if the sibling is still in attendance at the school 

• children closest to the school, as measured over the shortest public highway route 

• children living elsewhere in Brent 

• children living outside Brent 

If we have more applications than places available (over-subscription) we offer places in the above order.
