Nursery Classes

Nursery admissions are processed at De Beauvoir Primary School. Please collect an application form from the office.

If more children apply for a nursery place at a particular school than there are places available we will allocate places according to how many are available.

Priority will be given in the following order:

  1. A looked after child or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.
  2. Children with an educational, medical or social need for a nursery place.
  3. Children whose parents can take up or stay in a teaching post in one of Hackney’s schools.
  4. Children with brothers and sisters already at the school at the time of the proposed admission (includes half and step brothers and sisters living as a family unit full-time at the same address).
  5. Children living nearest to the school as measured in a straight line from their home address or their childminder’s address using a map or website for calculating distances.

If there is a tie-breaker decision for priorities 1, 2, 3 and 4, we will use distance as measured in priority 5 above.

The date table below shows when your child should start, and when to apply.
