Village Primary Academy


We have a 78 place nursery set within the Early Years setting of school.  We can take up to 39 children, from the age of 3, for either Session 1 or Session 2.

Your child is eligible for 15 hours of free nursery provision. 


We can also offer 30 hours free nursery provision for eligible 3 and 4 year olds.  If you believe you qualify for the 30 hours funding you must apply as soon as possible.  The hours must be applied for before the cut-off date provided by Derby City Council.  Details of which can be found on the following link:


If you qualify for the 30 hours funding, parents/guardians must re-apply every three months.  If you do not reapply or your circumstances change then it may mean that you are no longer entitled to these additional hours (but your child will continue to be eligible for the universal 15 hours)


2 Year Old Unit


We have a 24 place two year old room within the Early Years setting of school.  We can take up to 12 qualifying children for either Session 1 or Session 2.  Hours are the same as the Nursery.


Give your 2 year old a flying start in life.  To find out if you are eligible for a 2 year old funded place please call the Childcare and Families Information Service on 01332 640758.  If you receive a letter which says that your child may be entitled to a 2 year old place, please respond to the letter.


General Information


On the days your child is in Nursery all day you can purchase a hot school meal for just £1.00 or provide a healthy packed lunch.


Children in the 2 year old unit will all receive a free hot school meal.


Snack (voluntary contribution) £10 per term.


There is a waiting list for both the nursery and the 2 year old unit.  Children’s names can be placed on the waiting list at any time by enquiring at the school office where you will be asked to complete an admission form.


Please note that if you have a child in the nursery it does not mean that older siblings will be offered a place in the school. 


Please also note that a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school.  An application will need to be made to join the main school.


Please note we only offer term time provision and are closed during school holidays.
