Nursery Admission

Children are admitted in the September following their third birthday. Children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 are eligible to start in September 2018. The deadline for applications is 29th March 2018.

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. Children in nappies will only be admitted if evidence of a physical or educational need that prevents toilet training is provided.

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.
