Admissions

At Goose Green Primary School our supportive and highly skilled governors aim to provide a quality education in partnership with parents and staff so that our children can grow as self- confident, responsible and fun loving members of the global community.

Goose Green Primary and Nursery School joined Communitas Education Trust on 1st September 2017 and is funded directly by the Department for Education (DfE). We are our own admission authority and are responsible for our own admission arrangements. We are required to review the Admissions Policy every seven years or consult with all interested parties if there is any change

Nursery Admission

Children are admitted in the September following their third birthday. Children born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016 are eligible to start in September 2019. The deadline for applications is 29th March 2019.

Nursery admissions are managed by the school. Application forms must be returned to the school office with two proofs of address and the child’s original birth certificate. For admission purposes, the home address is where the child usually lives with their parent. If we are oversubscribed the admission criteria for Reception will be followed.

Admission Criteria for Reception

Goose Green Primary and Nursery School is a non-selective school for local children. If the School is oversubscribed, priority will be given to children with Educational Health Care Plan where the school is named on the Plan. The remaining places will then be offered in the following order of priority.

a) Looked after children and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence/special guardianship order).
b) Children who will have brothers or sisters attending the school at their time of entry, including half/step/adopted brothers and sisters who share the same home.
c) Where professional evidence indicates that there are particular psychological, medical or social needs which the Governing Body and Headteacher agree can best be addressed at the school.
d) Children living closest to the school, using ‘as the crow flies’ from the main entrance to the Academy to the main entrance of the child’s home. If a child lives in a block of flats the communal entrance will be used and lower door numbers will take priority.

N.B. Tie-break – Once all the criteria have been applied, places will be offered to children living nearest the school. For information about the admissions process, including key dates each year, please see Southwark Council and school website.

Primary admission limit: 60 places 

Supplementary information form required: No 

Appeals

Parents who are not offered a place for their child are entitled to appeal to an independent committee under the provisions of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998.
