Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

Nursery Admissions

The Holy Trinity Nursery is led by qualified teachers and follows the Government's "Early Years Foundation Stage" (EYFS) curriculum.
 
We admit children to the Nursery class in the September of the school year in which the child turns 4.  Children attend for 15 hours a week in term time, with children either attending in the mornings (from 8.30am to 11.30am Monday to Friday) or in the afternoons (12.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday).  Morning and afternoon places are confirmed once all places have been allocated.  We do our best to accommodate families' preferences.
 
We have 52 spaces in total (26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon).  Half of the places are allocated to Foundation place applicants (for more information please see the Admissions Policy), in keeping with our policy for the wider school.
 
As we are a voluntary aided school, we manage all Nursery applications ourselves in accordance with our Admissions Policy.  Applications should be sent directly to the school and should you wish to apply for a Foundation place you will also need to complete a Supplementary Form and to return this along with your application. 
 
The deadline for returning all completed Application Forms and Supplementary Forms relating to entry in September 2019 is Friday 8th February 2019.  Any applications received after this date will be treated as 'late' and children will be added to the waiting list.
 
If you are interested in an in-year place (i.e. if your child is already of nursery age and you would like to start immediately) please email Samantha Joiner (sbm@holytrinity.merton.sch.uk) who will let you know if we have spaces available and add you to the waiting list where applicable.
 
Please note that children who have attended the Nursery at Holy Trinity do not automatically receive a place in our Reception class, nor do they have priority over those who have not attended our Nursery.
 
We will be holding Open Days for families wishing to start Nursery in 2019 on:
  • Friday 12th October 2018 from 10am to 12noon
  • Friday 23rd November 2018 from 10am to 12noon
 No prior booking is required.  Please just register at the school office as close to 10am as possible.
