Nursery Henwick Primary School Admissions

We can now confirm our Nursery class is completely full and we have no more places to offer. Please note if you have completed a Nursery application it will remain on our waiting list until a place becomes available. Our next main Nursery intake will be September 2024.

Our Nursery admissions team at Henwick Primary School manage the applications and allocation of places in our Nursery classes.  

We have one main intake every September. We have intakes in January and April only if there are spaces available to offer.  After the admission of pupils with an education, health and care plan naming the school, if there are more applicants than places available priority will be given in the following order to:

(1) Looked after children and previously looked after children who have been adopted or become subject to a child arrangements or special guardianship order, immediately following having been looked after.

A ‘looked after child’ is a child who is in the care of a local authority, including foster care.

(2) Children who have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. 

A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society.

(3) Children or their immediate family member with a chronic medical condition or social care need for a particular school. 

Applicants need to set out the reasons why the school can best meet needs and the implications for the child or immediate family member if a place was not obtained at the school.  Evidence of the condition or need must be submitted with the application, such as a letter from a registered health professional or practitioner i.e. a doctor or social worker. 

(4) Children who have an older sibling or siblings attending the school.

(5) Royal Greenwich children ranked according to home to school distance.

(6) Children living in other boroughs ranked according to home to school distance.

Once your child is two years old please fill in the application form. Places are offered as available after your child’s third birthday.
