Admissions for mainstream Nursery

 

For information about eligibility for admissions under the Local Authority regulations please refer to the booklet entitled ‘A Parent’s Guide to Starting Nursery’, available from the school office or online.

 

We take children into the Nursery in the September after their 3rd birthday. You are invited to contact us the year before your child would be due to start nursery to book an appointment for a guided tour. Tour dates are available at: http://www.windham.richmond.sch.uk/school-information/admissions/tour-dates

 

If you think your child is eligible for a priority place e.g. they have a statement of Special Educational Need you must make this clear at the time of application enclosing any supporting evidence. Priority for admission to the Nursery will be given to those families living closest to the school. 

 

Application forms for September 2020 intake need to be returned by 6th March. Places will be offered by the end of May for upcoming September. Please use to below link to apply.

ADMISSIONS PROCEDURES

 

 

Process for offering places 

  • Parents living closest to the school will be offered a place first, this means that morning places are usually allocated to parents living closest to the school.
  • Parents stating  a preference for an afternoon place more often than not have their request fulfilled
  • Parents wanting a morning place after all morning places have been allocated can request to be put on a waiting list. There can be no guarantee a morning place will become available.
  • Any morning places which do subsequently become available will continue to be offered out in terms of proximity to the school not on any ‘position’ on a waiting list
  • The offering out process can take up until the October of the year of admittance. The school would continue to work through on- time applications. Then work down the list of late applications.
