Nursery Admissions

Nursery 098

Applications for a place in our Nursery class are made directly to the school and can be done at any time during the school year (once the child has reached the age of 3) depending on spaces available.

Applications must be made in hard copy. The form that must be completed is available from the school office.

In line with Lewisham’s Admission Criteria, where there is over-subscription, priority is given to:

  • Children in public care (i.e. looked after by the local authority).
    Children with an acute medical or social need (the application must be supported by a letter from a professional such as doctor or a social * worker).
  • Applicants whose brother or sister is on roll at Holbeach Primary School.
    If any places remain, unfilled priority will be offered to children who live closest to the school. Distance will be measured in a straight line * using digitised mapping software.
  • Offers are made approximately 4 months before the September that a child would be due to start.
  • Unsuccessful applicants do not have the right of appeal but the child’s name can be placed on a waiting list.

Please note that a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception Class. You must apply separately at the appropriate time online to the Local Authority.
