If you are interested in a nursery place for your child please come into school to collect an admission form. Our school receptionists will help you complete the form, please bring your child's birth certificate with you.

In April we hold meetings for parents who would like a nursery place for their child. These meeting are stay and play sessions in school. Sessions are attended by parent and child and are a positive way for school to find out about your child. Once we have met all the children we write to parents to offer nursery places.

The admission criteria for nursery is:

  • Children with an Education Health Care Plan that names Grove School
  • Looked after or previously looked after children
  • Siblings (brother or sister who will still be in attendance in the academic year of joining)
  • Distance (children who live nearest the school).

Part time morning places are Monday- Friday 8.30-11.30am. 

Part time afternoon places are Monday- Friday 12.15- 3.15pm. 

Admission forms are available below to download, from the school office, telephone 0121 464 4669 or email
