Admission to Nursery 

Please note, unlike admissions to the main school, nursery admissions are handled directly by the school. All parents are welcome to fill in an application form for a nursery place as soon as their child is 2½ years old. It is important to note that a nursery place does not guarantee a place in any particular primary school. Equally, parents keep the right to a primary school place even if they do not take up a nursery place. Children are eligible to start Nursery as soon as they turn three years old. Parents are not able to appeal for a nursery place but can try a different nursery.

Hours for the nursery are:

Morning session:     8:45-11:45am

Afternoon session: 12:15-3:15pm


Determined Admission Arrangements – September 2020

The law requires that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined by admission authorities.

All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements annually, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2020, by 28 February 2019.  The LB Newham is the admission authority for all maintained schools located in Newham with the exception of the faith schools who are their own admission authorities.  Add school name is a LB Newham maintained school meaning we must use their admission arrangements.

For any proposed changes to the existing determined arrangements a formal consultation must take place and must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1 October and 31 January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements which are to apply to applications in 2019 (entry in September 2020), consultation must be completed by 31 January 2019. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed arrangements.  We did not propose any changes for 2020 as our changes were made and consulted upon for entry in September 2019

Our Determined Arrangements for the school year starting in September 2020 are:

You can be object to these arrangements or the arrangements of any school by referring to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator. Objections to admission arrangements for entry in September 2020 must be referred to the Adjudicator by 15 May 2019. Any decision of the Adjudicator must be acted on by the admission authority and admission arrangements amended accordingly.
