Clifton Primary has two nursery sessions.
The morning session is between 8.45am to 11.45am and the afternoon session is between 12.45pm to 3.45pm.
Both classes have a maximum of 26 spaces each.

Advice to Parents
All preferences are treated equally and the Local Authority will offer the highest preference that is able to be offered. Therefore parents should rank the schools in order of their preference.
It is advisable to use all the preferences (6) and make one of the preferences the priority area school.
If the Local Authority is unable to offer any of the preferences the parents will be offered a place at a school which has a vacancy at the end of the process. Therefore it is important that they make realistic preferences and make their nearest school one of those preferences.
