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.
Proposed Admissions Policy – Changes with Effect from September 2020
We are required to review the Admissions Policy every seven years or consult with all interested parties if there is any change. Our consultation period for reviewing our Admissions Policy closed on 30 January 2019. We have now collated the responses and received Trustee approval in respect of the proposed Admissions Policy from autumn 2020.
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 2019 admissions, we will be accepting thirty nine children born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016. Nursery Admissions are managed by the school and not the Local Authority. Applications for entry in September 2019 must be submitted by Monday 1 April 2019. If you would like to apply for a place in our Nursery for your child please complete a registration form. You can download the registration form 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 at www.eadmissions.org.uk/eAdmissions/app.
Applications should be made by January prior to the next September intake. The deadline for September 2019 admissions has now passed, and families will receive notification of the outcome of the application on National Offer Day, 16th April 2019 directly from Southwark Local Authority. Late applications should also be made online at www.eadmissions.org.uk/eAdmissions/app.
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.
We welcome any families who are interested in sending their child to Goose Green to come for a tour of the school. Tours are held each month from September through to February although outside of these months, please contact the school office to arrange a date with us.
