Sudbury Primary Nursery Unit provides free 15 hour Nursery places, and free 30 hour places for children of qualifying parents. Please check your eligibility status here:
30 hour codes must be validated in the month before the start of each school term.
Please note that pupils do not automatically transfer from Nursery to Reception Year Group, gaining a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception Year Group and priority cannot be given to pupils who already attend our Nursery.
Completed forms should be submitted to the school with a photocopy of your child’s full birth certificate or passport, and a photocopy of your current council tax bill as proof of address. Alternatively, copies of utility bills issued in the last 6 months may be provided as proof of address.

Families of pupils living outside Brent should apply via their home borough.
Admission Appeals Process
The grounds for appealing are very restricted, particularly for Reception, Years 1 and 2 as these classes are limited to 30 pupils per room. Appeals would only be successful in the following exceptional circumstances:
- If the admissions procedure was not carried out properly
- If the decision not to admit the child was not one which a reasonable admission authority would make in the circumstances of the case, or breaches the School Admissions Appeal Code.
Appeals for Reception Admissions for September 2024 must be made within four weeks of the National Offer Date (16th April, 2024). Appeal forms are available from the school office.
