Our policy on Admissions conforms to the regulations set out in the Standards and Framework Act 1998. We are an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and of all abilities. All applications will be treated on merit and in a sensitive manner. The only restriction we place on entry is that of number. We have 60 Nursery places. In full time school we can take up to 90 children in year group as we are three form entry throughout the school.
Intake and Organisation
Glebe Nursery provides part-time education for children who are three years old by the start of the academic year. There are 30 places in both the morning and afternoon. Since 2017 there are full time places available (8.45am - 3.30pm). Please see 30hrs Nursery Childcare. Children are admitted from the start of September. Applications for places in our nursery can be made through the school office where you can also find a copy of our school admissions policy. For a Nursery application form see pdf below.
Children are admitted to full time education (Reception year) when they are 4 years old by the start of the academic year. Applications for places is made through the local authority (www.hillingdon.gov.uk for more details and please refer to Hillingdon's admission arrangements [PDF] below ). The local authority has its own admissions policy and criteria. For further details please see our Admissions Policy which can be found below which also contains admission arrangements. Full Admissions Arrangements can be found using the following link Hillingdon Admissions Arrangements.
The intake into the Nursery and Reception is staggered so that the staff have ample time to cater for the needs of individual children as they come to school for the first time. This helps ensure a smooth transition in to school.
