In the event of the Nursery being oversubscribed we will allocate places in line with the following criteria:

Category 2 - Children who have a sibling who is attending the school at the time of entry.

Category 3 - Children who at the time of application have their home address within the  ecclesiastical parish of Ardeley (a map is available on the school website).

Category 4 - Children whose home address is outside the area as defined in Category 3 above, but where one or more of whose parents/guardians have, at the time of application, shown commitment to the Church of England or another Christian Church by attending a service at least once in each calendar month for the year prior to an application being made. Applicants in this category will need to ask their priest, minister or responsible official to complete  the relevant section of SIF/Clergy Form.

 The main Christian denominations are defined by membership of Churces Together in England or the Evangelical Alliance.

Category 5 - Children who have a sibling who has attended the school in the past.
