Nursery Admissions

Children can be registered for our Nursery by calling into the school office and filling out a Nursery application form. You can also download an application form below and drop it off at the school office. Please do NOT email the form. We will contact you when a place becomes available. Children are admitted into our Nursery during the year they turn 4 years old. We follow the same admissions criteria as the Local Authority. (see below)

 

The times for Nursery from September 2016 are

Morning Nursery 8:40am to 11:40am

We offer 15 hours free Nursery as 5 mornings or 5 afternoons. There may be the option to purchase additional sessions at £5 per hour depending on availability.

Please contact Maynard Road for further information.

 

Please be aware that not all applications are successful and we will do all we can to inform you if your application has not been as successful as soon as we can.

Visits to our Nursery for prospective parents and carers will take place in the Spring term 2017.

Reception admissions

Children are admitted into Reception in September. If your child attends our Nursery you must still apply for a Reception place. If you already have a child at our school you must still apply for a Reception place. We have 120 Reception places (PAN).

 

The closing date for applications is 15 January 2017 for September 2017.

If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 they are due to start in the Reception class at a primary school from September 2017.

 

We follow the Waltham Forest admissions policy which can be found and downloaded below. The local authority allocate places. If there are more applications than there are places available Waltham Forest will use the following criteria, in priority order, to decide who should be offered a place at our school
Priority 1 – Looked-After Children or Children ‘At Risk’
Priority 2 – Medical or social reasons
Priority 3 – Siblings
Priority 4 – Distance 

(definitions of the groups above can be found on the Waltham Forest website)


Children who have a statement of Special Educational Needs are placed in schools under the terms of the Education Act 1996 and not through the admissions criteria referred to above. 
Children who have a statement of Special Educational Needs will be allocated a place at the school named on their statement.

 

Our school induction programme includes a meeting for all new Reception parents and carers in June before the children start school, along with opportunities for the children to come and meet their teacher and play with their new classmates. Informal parent and carer sessions provide the opportunity to meet other parents and ask questions about school routines and school life.

 

Prospective parent visits
We hold tours for prospective Reception parents and carers to look around the school. Please contact the Maynard Road office to book a place on the tour.
