Answer for Nursery provision on free school sites

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Eight of the free schools on sites provided by the GLA are primaries or All-Throughs. All are on temporary sites and none currently have nurseries.

One intends to open a nursery and two intend to consider opening one, once they are on their permanent sites.

Five do not intend to open nurseries: two because their sites will be too small; one because it is a special needs school; one because it is in a chain which does not do nurseries; and one because of the decision of its Governors.
