Admissions - Nursery Class





Welcome and thank you for your interest in our nursery class!


Dunmore Nursery is a very popular Oxfordshire Council maintained nursery, and is part of the early years provision at Dunmore Primary School, based in Northcourt Road, Abingdon.  There is also easy access via either Farm Road or South Avenue, Holland Road and Sellwood Road (within walking distance from the new Abbey Fields development).    


We are very proud of our wonderful nursery class setting. We have lots of open space, activities, outdoor areas and equipment.  We have very dedicated and experienced nursery staff who  provide excellent Early Years Education for the children.  We also strive to ensure that they, and their parents/carers, feel part of the whole experience of being part of an Early Years & Primary School setting.


In addition to our excellent Early Years education, we may also be able to offer wrap around care from 7.45am to 5.45pm in our very popular Breakfast and After School Club, Fun Kids Club,


We welcome visits so please do contact us if you would like to arrange one.  You can do this either by email - phone - 01235 520550.


Admissions into primary school nursery class are dealt with directly by the school, so please contact us if you are interested in joining the class. However, admissions into school full-time, (Reception to Year 6) are processed by Oxfordshire County Council's Admissions Team.


Universal Early Education Funding entitlement starts at the beginning of the term after the child’s 3rd birthday, providing at least 15 hours free nursery provision. We also offer up to an additional 15 hours for parents entitled to the extended 30 hours provision (please see the Nursery Provision attachment below for more information).  Please note that we do not split nursery hours with any other early years settings.


PLEASE NOTE that attendance in a school nursery does not automatically entitle your child to a place in a Reception year class at Dunmore Primary School, you still have to apply for this through the Oxfordshire Council -
