Admission Arrangements

Nursery

Welcome to Brampton Primary School’s nursery admission section. We look forward to welcoming your child into our school.

Brampton Primary School has a 104 place nursery. The nursery consists of two morning and two afternoon classes, each on a 15 hour part-time basis. When registering for a nursery place, you will need to let us know whether you would prefer a morning or afternoon place.

Children can be placed on the waiting list for the nursery after the age of two years. We cannot guarantee you a place but we do try to offer all children at least three terms in the nursery.

We will let you know by letter when we have a place for your child—usually around the time they are three years old. At that point, you will be given a full nursery pack to complete. Once the pack is returned a member of staff will contact you to arrange a home visit and start date for your child.

Please follow this link for the nursery registration form.

Children join our Reception class in September as we currently have a single point of entry. We arrange meetings for parents in the term before their child goes into a Reception class.

We admit children into other year groups if we have a place available. However, parents first register their need for a school place with Pupil Services, London Borough of Newham.

If you are considering applying for a place for your child in our school, whether it is in the Nursery, Reception or any other year group, you are very welcome to look around either during or after the school day. However, it is advisable to make an appointment so that a member of staff can be available to show you around and answer any questions you may have.

We would welcome you applying for a place at our school. To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.
