Admissions Arrangements

We are community primary school with a nursery offering education to children from 3 to 11 years. Our school is an inclusive school and we are firmly committed to serving the needs of all the children in our local community. The London Borough of Hounslow sets our admissions policy.

PRIMARY SCHOOL ADMISSIONS

  • Morning and Afternoon Nursery

    The nursery provides 60 places (30 morning places & 30 afternoon places). Children requiring a nursery place may be offered a place between their third and fourth birthdays. Where there are more requests than places available, the school uses the selection criteria drawn up by The London Borough of Hounsow.

  • Reception Classes

    The school admits 30 children to each of our reception classes (60 in total). Please note that children, including siblings, who are already attending our nursery need to apply for a reception place directly to the Local Authority. There is no automatic right of admission from nursery to the main primary school. Parents of children in the nursery are strongly encouraged to apply for a place in a reception class, but places will be offered according to the strict application of our admissions criteria.

    Starting school in Reception class in September 2017:  You must apply for a place for your child to start Reception in September 2017 by January 15th at the very latest. www.hounslow.gov.uk/admissions . We do not process the administration of applications to the main school. This is organised by the Local Authority.

    Children are normally admitted to the reception classes at the beginning of the Autumn Term.

    If we are oversubscribed (our maximum intake is 60 places), the London Borough of Hounslow Admissions Section will allocate places using the following criteria. These are listed in priority order:

    • Children in public care (those looked after by a local authority under section 22 of the Children Act 1989).
    • Children who have an exceptional medical, social or educational need that requires their attendance at a particular school
    • Children who have siblings already attending the school
    • Children living closest to Green Dragon Primary School.

  • Transfers

    When parents move into the area or wish to change their child's school, they should contact The London Borough of Hounslow, for an application form and who will advise them whether a place is available in a particular year group.

    If a place is available, the family will be invited to visit the school. The family will be shown around the school and asked to complete a number of information forms.

    Where parents or carers are planning to remove their child from the school, the head teacher should be informed. Information about the child will then be passed on to the new school.

    When children are in Year 6, preparations will begin for their transfer to secondary school. Please click here to be directed to The London Borough of Hounslow Secondary Schools Admissions site.
