Becket Primary School

Starting Nursery

Welcome to the Nursery class at Becket Primary School. We are delighted that your child will be joining us.

Please find below information you will need for your child starting school.

The admission form and consent form must be completed and returned to school. This will be emailed to you in the form of a survey but a paper copy can be found below if this is easier for you.

Please spend time with your child sharing the Induction booklet together.

Why I Am Special


30 FREE hours from 3 YEARS:

From September 2017 your child will be eligible for 30 hours free childcare if you meet the following criteria:

  • You earn or expect to earn the equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum or Living Wage over the coming three months. (This equates to £120 a week (or c.£6,000 a year) for each parent over 25 years old or £112.80 a week (or c.£5,800 a year) for each parent between 21 and 24 years old).

  • This applies whether you are in paid employment, self-employed or on zero hours contract.

  • The parent (and their partner where applicable) are seeking the free childcare to enable them to work.

  • Where one or both parents are on maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave, or if they are on statutory sick leave.

    You will NOT receive 30 free hours if:

  • Either parent has an income of more than £100,000.

  • Either parent is a non-EEA national and subject to immigration control (and has no recourse to public funds)
