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).
If your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 they are due to start Reception in September 2021.
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 (not if out of area)
Priority 4 – School Staff Children
Priority 5 – Distance
(definitions of the groups above can be found on the Waltham Forest website)
Children who have a Education Health Care plan (EHCP) 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 EHCP will be allocated a place at the school named on their EHCP.
