For admission to nursery schools in Devon the reach areas of the co-located children’s centre will be used as a guide for governors when they are allocating nursery places. Please refer to the maps above if you are considering applying for a place at Chestnut Nursery School or Westexe Nursery School in Exeter. Priority will be given to children living within the reach areas in the same way as schools designated areas are used to determine priority for admission to nursery classes in primary and infant schools in Devon.
