The Early Years

at Hebden Royd Primary School

Starting Nursery

Children are admitted to our Nursery class three times a year (September, January and after Easter) from the term following their 3rd birthday (or later). Full time and part time places are available, and full or half days, which is ideal for introducing children to the school environment.

If you want your child to start in Nursery, you apply directly to school. Contact us to arrange a visit and pick up an application form in the school office.

All 3 and 4 year olds in England are entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week, which equates to 5 half day sessions. Many families are entitled to 30 hours. Extra sessions cost £12 per half day.


Starting school in another year

Children may be able to join our school in other year groups at any time during the school year, if a place is available.  Please contact us to arrange a visit and to discuss this.


Come and have a look around

We hope exploring this website has given you a good idea of what our school is like, but it’s no substitute for visiting in person and meeting our staff and pupils. We think you’ll be impressed. Please get in touch to arrange a visit.
