We have a Nursery here at Myatt Garden and we offer places for children from age 3.
We have two intakes per academic year, a September intake and a January intake. Your child will have 3-5 terms in Nursery depending on which month their birthday falls in:
- September – December = January intake
- January – August = September intake
From September 2017, we will be providing the government entitlement of either 15 or 30 hours per week. To check if you are entitled to 30 hours childcare, please visit www.gov.uk
For those children entitled to 15 hours, the nursery session will start at 9.15 and end at 12.15. Children entitled to 30 hours will attend from 9.15 to 3.15 and will need to bring a packed lunch.
We recommend that you put your child’s name on the waiting list when they are age 2. All you need to do is fill out a basic application form which you download here: Nursery Application Form or get a copy from the school office (no proofs will be required until a place is offered).
We manage our own admissions in line with Lewisham Admissions Critieria. This considers children in care and current school siblings and distance to the school.
Please note that the offer of a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the reception class.
Please come and visit us to have a look around the Nursery and ask any further questions.
If you wish to apply for a school place for your child from Year 1 – Year 6 you will have to apply through Lewisham Council. This is called an ‘in-year admission’.
To proceed with an in year admission an ‘In-Year Common Application Form’ will have to be completed, this form is available from Lewisham Council or from their website Transferring to a new school. Some proof will need to be submitted with this form, this includes: proof of address in the form of a current council tax bill and proof of parental responsibility in the form of a current copy of the child benefit or tax credit letter.
