Islington is proposing changes to the admissions policy for nursery classes in Islington primary schools and children's centres. We would also like to ask providers to encourage parents to respond to the consultation. The consultation is open until 28th May 2017 and is accessed online:
The change to the admissions policy is in response to government changes to the Early Years National Funding Formula and the introduction of 30-hours free childcare from September 2017
The aim of changing the admissions policy is to:
- support providers to allocate full time and part time places
- ensure a fair and transparent policy and practice across maintained early years settings in the borough
- continue to support the most vulnerable children to access a full-time provision
