Our nursery has 50 part-time places:
25 morning from 8.45am – 11.45am and
25 afternoon from 12.30pm – 15.30pm.
When and how do I apply
We accept applications once your child is two years old. To apply for a nursery class place at George Eliot, you will need to apply directly to the school. You are welcome to arrange a visit and make an application.
When would my child start nursery?
Children start in our nursery in the September after they turn 3 years old.
How does the school allocate nursery places?
There may not be enough places in the nursery class to take all the children who would like to attend. For community schools, where there are more applications than places, the school will allocate places in accordance to the published admissions criteria for community and maintained nursery schools. Please note that there is no automatic transfer from the nursery class to the reception class. There is a separate application procedure for reception class places.
How do I apply?
Under the pan-London co-ordinated admissions system (PLCAS) all parents must list the schools they want to apply for on their home Council’s common application form, ranking them in order of preference. This is important, as potentially only one offer will be made and this will be from the highest ranked school able to make the offer. This form, either paper or online is returned to the local Council for the area in which the child lives. The Council will co-ordinate the admissions process to ensure that no child receives more than one offer of a place at a London Primary School (the highest preference for which they are eligible). It is therefore very important to put your preferences in the right order.
