Goose Green Primary and Nursery School joined Communitas Education Trust on 1 September 2017. We are our own admission authority and are responsible for our own admission arrangements.
Admissions Policy – September 2020 onwards
After the appropriate consultation, the school has approved a new Admissions Policy to take effect from September 2020. It remains in line with guidance provided by the London Borough of Southwark and will be used for all admissions from September 2020 onwards.
Existing Admissions Policy
Children are admitted to the school according to the guidelines laid down by the London Borough of Southwark, as well as our own school Admissions Policy.
We welcome children to the Nursery in the academic year in which they turn four years of age. All children in England in this age group are entitled to 15 hours free nursery funding a week. This national funding scheme at Goose Green is taken over three days, Monday to Wednesday 9am to 3.20pm.
For September 2020 admissions, we will be accepting thirty nine children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017. Nursery Admissions are managed by the school and not the Local Authority. If you would like to apply for a place in our Nursery for your child please complete a registration form. You can download the admissions form and privacy statement or call into the school office to collect a hard copy.
We welcome children to our Reception class in September. Children would attend Reception in the academic year in which they turn five years of age. The admissions process is managed by Southwark Council and applications must be made online.
Applications should be made by January prior to the next September intake. The deadline for September 2020 admissions has now passed, and families will receive notification of the outcome of the application on National Offer Day, 16th April 2020 directly from Southwark Local Authority. Late applications should also be made online.
In Year Admissions
In year applications should be made directly to the school. For children moving from another Southwark school, a Southwark In Year Transfer form must also be completed.
