All applications will be considered and places allocated following Luton Borough Council’s guidelines.  The school will endeavour to ensure that the Nursery will have no surplus places and any places will be filled as soon as possible.  If the school is full, your child will be put on a waiting list and this will be on a first come first served basis.
