All Hounslow Infant and Primary schools have Nursery classes. Children can take up a free, part-time place in these nurseries in the September after their third birthday, but cannot be admitted before the school year in which they reach the age of four.
Some working families may be eligible to take up a free, full-time nursery place if the criteria set by HMRC is met. For further details or to check your eligibility, please click on the link below:
At Edward Pauling Primary School, we offer our Nursery pupils 15 hours free child care in either a morning or afternoon session.
In addition to the 15 hour sessions we also offer a limited number of places for 30 hours free child care for eligible pupils.
If your child was born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 they can be admitted to a Nursery Class in September 2023.
Applying for Nursery
Nursery admissions are managed by individual schools.
We advise all parents to read our starting Nursery class in a Hounslow school before making an application, please see the booklet for Nursery 2023 admissions below. Some schools require applicants to complete additional forms.
Please contact each school to ensure you have completed all the required forms.
Please see below the Nursery application form for Edward Pauling Primary School. If you have any further questions please email Ms Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be aware, education in a school Nursery is not compulsory and it may not be possible for every child to secure a place in a school Nursery. If your child already has a place at a private day Nursery or playgroup, you may prefer to keep them there until they start Reception in the following September.
