At Long Furlong we have a Nursery class led by a qualified teacher, and a qualified Early Years Support Worker.  Sessions are available from Monday to Friday during school term-time only, 8:45 – 11:45 a.m.  As a maintained school we receive funding for Nursery places from the government; our Nursery class is therefore provided at no charge to parents.  Children do not have to attend all five sessions every week, but please note that if your child is registered at our Nursery, we will receive the full 15 hours’ universal funding.

If we have spaces, your child can be considered for a place at any point after the term in which they reach the age of 3, as follows:

  • If your child’s 3rd birthday is in April, May, June, July or August, they can start at any point from the September after their 3rd birthday
  • If your child’s 3rd birthday is in September, October, November or December, they can start at any point from the January after their 3rd birthday
  • If your child’s 3rd birthday is in January, February or March, they can start at any point from the April after their 3rd birthday

Nursery admissions are managed by the school and must comply with Oxfordshire County Council’s Nursery Admissions policy, which can be accessed by clicking below.

We hold regular Open Days where you and your child can visit on an informal basis, and take the opportunity to discuss Nursery life with the staff.  If you wish to register your child for a place in our Nursery, you can do so by completing this form and returning it to the school office:

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
