• Reception Admissions

    Entry into Reception

    Applications for places are dealt with by the Waltham Forest Schools Admissions Service. They will handle all questions and issues arising; we remain neutral in this process. Please click here for information on this.

    We have one intake each year, at the start of the Autumn Term. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday. Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school or to visit on our open day. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we are not organising visits or Open Days in school.

    Parents are usually asked to complete preference forms in the Autumn of the year before the child starts school. Places are allocated in the late Spring /early Summer Term – we have a maximum intake of 30 children in each class. Following this stage, some parents choose to appeal if their choices have not been met.

    Once we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to an Open Evening with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have. This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. Reception staff arrange to visit each child within their home, these are carried out in the July before the September start.

  • In Year Admissions

    Entry into Years 1 - Years 6

    In-Year applications are also dealt with by the Waltham Forest Schools Admissions Service. After accepting a place at the school, children and their parents are invited to attend an admissions meeting with the Executive Head teacher to discuss their transition into the school and to agree an admission date.

    For further details regarding admissions, please refer to the school admission policy.

    You can apply for any of the above sessions, however, if we are able to offer you a place in our nursery, we cannot guarantee an offer of your requested session.

    All three and four year olds are entitled to receive 15 hours free of charge, at Salisbury Manor these sessions run daily (Monday to Friday) for 3 hours, unfortunately the Nursery do not run sessions where the free entitlement of 15 hours is spread over 3 days, therefore, you are entitled to either daily AM sessions or daily PM sessions. Full time places can be provided where the family is eligible to receive the 30-hour funding (subject to availability).

    You can find more information regarding this by visiting the government website 30 hours free childcare - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). If at any point you are no longer eligible to receive this funding, your school place for full time childcare will be terminated after your grace period.

    To apply for a place at our nursery, please complete our Nursery Application Form . Once completed and a space is available, you will be contacted by our Admissions team to verify any official (original) documents including the child’s DOB , proof of name and address. Subsequently, you will be invited in to meet with the nursery teacher and visit the school nursery with your child.

    Please note: the offer to a Nursery place does not guarantee the offer of a place in Reception. An application will need to be made with Waltham Forest , please visit Home | eAdmissions. to apply for a Primary School Place (Reception to Year 6).
