Little Elvers is a flexible provision which is open 38 weeks of the year from 0730 - 1630. Parents may use their 30 hrs free nursery entitlement in the term after their 3rd birthday. Additional hours can be booked at the given hourly rate, currently £5.00 per hour.


The 30 hr free entitlement can be used in term time (38 weeks per year). These can be used for any sessions where there is availability. Further sessions and lunch can be added at cost (currently £5.00 per hour)


Statement of intent

It is our future intention to make Little Elvers accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community.

Places are allocated immediately where there are existing spaces. Places will be allocated in accordance with the following admissions criteria.

Children who have an EHCP plan that names Little Elvers will be admitted.

  1. Children who are Looked After
  2. Child with a sibling attending Isle of Ely at the time of the application.
  3. Other children by distance from the school with priority for admission being given to those who live nearest to the school as measured by a straight line.


Where places cannot be allocated, your child’s details will be added to our waiting list. This will be arranged in strict order of the admissions criteria, not according to the date of application.


A pupil may be refused admission only if Little Elvers is full to the admissions limit or if the child is not of the appropriate age. There is no right of appeal against the refusal to award a place in Little Elvers, since there are statutory criteria governing adult: pupil ratios that cannot be over-ridden.


Parents are required to provide proof of the child’s date of birth and home address. Evidence may be submitted in the form of the child’s birth certificate or passport/identity card.


A child’s home address is defined as the address where he or she resides with an adult with parental responsibility for the majority of week-day nights. In cases where a child spends equal time living in two different homes, the address that is most favourable to the application will be considered as the home address.


Families knowingly attempting to register their child at more than one setting for more than their 15 hours free entitlements may have their place withdrawn.
