Nursery and Reception Intake

Starting Nursery or Reception in September 2018

Currently, we are a three form entry primary school with a maintained nursery. After an exciting expansion, from September 2018 we will be a four form entry primary school, with maintained nurseries, on a split site.

Our existing ‘Hackbridge Corner’ site has a 52 part-time place (15 hours universal free education) nursery and three forms of entry (90 pupils) from Reception to Year 6.

Our additional new ‘London Road’ site, which will open in September 2018, will have a 26 full-time place (30 hours free education (15 hours universal plus 15 hours extended entitlement) nursery and initially one form of entry for Reception (30 pupils). The ‘London Road’ site will expand by a year group each year until it is fully one form of entry from Reception to Year 6 by September 2024.

Nursery applications are made directly to the school.

Children can begin nursery in the term after they are 3, where places are available.

We will offer places for any vacancies for children eligible to start in April 2019 in February 2019.

Your initial letter from the school will advise the date which you and your child should attend their intake meeting.

These are:

At your intake meeting, you will find out more information about the specific arrangements for your child starting nursery in September and your child will get to meet and spend time with the nursery staff.

 

Dates for children starting Nursery in September are as follows:

  • Monday 3rd September 2018 - INSET Day - School closed to all pupils.
  • Tuesday 4th September 2018 to Friday 7th September 2018 – Home Visits undertaken to pupils - no Nursery classes this week.
  • Mon 10th September 2018 - existing Nursery pupils return.
  • From Tuesday 11th September 2018 - new pupils to join according to their individual start dates. At the intake meeting in July, you will be given your child’s specific start date for September – we stagger the intake slightly to ensure that every child has a settled start to joining the class.

 

Reception for 2018/2019

For Reception pupils joining us in September 2018, the London Borough of Sutton will allocate 120 pupils to the school on the national offer day of 16th April 2018. You will not be told by the local authority which site your child will be educated at - this is for the school to determine using the admissions criteria.

The school will determine which site each child will attend for the 2018/2019 year and advise parents accordingly on Monday 30th April 2018.

You will also be invited to an intake meeting in the summer term (usually within the first week of July).

Please note: From September 2018, after our expansion on a split site, pupils within the school may be educated on either site each year and not just at the site which they originally begin at. Pupils at either site will access the facilities and resources on either site e.g. the new school field on the ‘London Road’ site or the Sports Hall on our ‘Hackbridge Corner’ site.
