Admission Arrangements

Children can be placed on the waiting list for the Nursery after the age of 2 years. We will then let you know by letter when we have a place for your child—usually around the time they are 3½ years old. At that point, you will be given a full Nursery pack to complete. Once the pack is returned a member of staff will contact you to arrange a home visit and start date for your child.

Children join our Reception class in September as we currently have a single point of entry. We arrange meetings for parents in the term before their child goes into a Reception class.

We admit children into other year groups if we have a place available. However, parents first register their need for a school place with Pupil Services, London Borough of Newham.

If you are considering applying for a place for your child in our school, whether it is in the Nursery, Reception or any other year group, you are very welcome to look around either during or after the school day. However, it is advisable to make an appointment so that a member of staff can be available to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
