Children can be admitted to the Nursery Class after their third birthday and will normally spend four terms in the Nursery, until eligible for the Main School. The Nursery currently offers only a morning session, there are places for 26 children in this session. Children enter the main school at the beginning of the academic year in which they are five. As a single form entry Primary school Greenwich has defined the approved class size as 30 children. The classes are arranged into single year groups:
Nursery 3/5 years
Reception 4/5 years
Key Stage 1:
Year 1 5/6 years
Year 2 6/7 years
Key Stage 2:
Year 3 7/8 years
Year 4 8/9 years
Year 5 9/10 years
Year 6 10/11 years
The school is always over-subscribed for places in both the Nursery and Reception Classes. Admission into the Nursery is the responsibility of the school. However admission into the Reception class is the responsibility of the Local Authority.
If you wish to apply for a Nursery place you should contact the school to make an appointment to meet the Headteacher and visit the Nursery.
During this visit you may collect an application form and the Admissions procedure will be fully explained. The Headteacher and nursery staff will answer any questions parents may have. You and your child are welcome to stay and play in the Nursery for a part – or if they wish a whole, Nursery session. Parents who wish to apply for a Nursery place must then fill in the application form and return it to school no later than their child’s third birthday. We admit children to our Nursery after their third birthday.
All applicants will be notified when or if they have been successful in their application. If an applicant is not successful, their application form will be held in school and will be reconsidered, if a place becomes available.
