Admission to the Nursery Class

Three and four year old children can go to nursery classes attached to primary schools in Hackney. The age that your child can start depends on the number of places available.

At De Beauvoir Primary School, we process our nursery admissions. Application forms are available from the main office. You will need to provide proof of your address with your application form. Once your application form has been received, we will contact you before your child is due to start to let you know if they have a place. If your child is offered a place, we will need to see their birth certificate to confirm their date of birth.
