Admission into Burhill Nursery
If you would like to register for a place at Burhill Nursery, you can do so by visiting the school between 9am and 4.30pm to fill out a registration card. You must bring with you originals of your child's birth certificate, a current council tax bill and a recent (not more than 3 months old) utility bill. You can only register your child once he/she has turned 18 months old.
We follow the same criteria as Surrey County Council Admissions. That is:
- Firstly, we offer to children with exceptional arrangements/special needs;
- Secondly, to children who will have siblings attending the school UPON ENTRY to the Nursery;
- Finally, to children for whom the school is the nearest (the distance will be measured by a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house, as set by Ordnance Survey to the front gate of the school).
Before our Admissions Officer can offer a Nursery place at Burhill, we need to be informed by Surrey County Council of the children coming into our Reception year. Once we have this information we will know the Nursery sibling places we can offer. Surrey County Council’s notification does not take place until the middle of April each year, therefore we cannot send out our Nursery offer letters until late April each year, at the earliest.
There are 52 places available in the Nursery (26 morning: 9 am -12.00 noon, and 26 afternoon: 12.15 pm -3.15pm), so 52 letters offering those places will be sent out. There will be a timescale for people to return their acceptance or decline. If declines are received, further letters offering those places to the next eligible children are sent out. This process will continue until all 52 places are filled. Letters to all other applicants informing them that they have been unsuccessful in securing a Nursery place, and offering them the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list, will then be sent out. Those letters should be sent out by the end of May/beginning of June. When offering places from the waiting list, we will apply the same criteria as above, i.e., exceptional arrangements/special needs; sibling in the school upon entry to Nursery; distance from the school.
If your child is offered a place in our Nursery, and you accept, this does not automatically guarantee you a place at the school. Likewise, if you are not offered a place in our Nursery, or you are unable to accept a place offered, this does not in any way have a negative impact on your application for the school. Admissions to the primary school are administered by Surrey County Council.
