We believe that all young children should have an equal opportunity to access high quality, Early Years Education.

To ensure all stakeholders understand our commitment to equalities and fairness we believe there needs to be clarity with regard to the priorities, criteria and procedures for allocating places at St Pauls Nursery School and Children’s Centre.



  • To have a fair and consistent process for allocating places.
  • To ensure a socio-economic balance in our intake, from which all children benefit and thrive whilst upholding equal opportunities.
  • To ensure all applicants are equally valued and that families are able to express their and their children’s needs.
  • To reflect Bristol’s Policy on Early Years Education and allocation of places and current research on the best provision for Nursery Aged Children.
