Starting Reception

The law states that children are admitted to School at the beginning of the term after he or she reaches 5 years of age. In Sutton, all children are admitted earlier than this. All Reception children start school in September. Other children are accepted into the school at any time during the year, providing there is a place available in the relevant year group.

Starting Nursery

The earliest that a child can be considered to start a Sutton Community Nursery is at the beginning of the term after their third birthday. Your child’s date of birth will determine the maximum amount of time that they can spend in nursery before starting primary school. Sutton aims to provide at least one year of part-time nursery education prior to a child’s admission to primary school. In Sutton, children are eligible to start primary school in the academic year after they turn four years of age. Many nurseries will fill up in the Autumn term. Therefore, if your child is eligible to start nursery in the Spring term, there will be no guarantee that places will be available. Your child may have to wait until the Autumn term to be considered for a vacancy.

We are currently reviewing the admissions policy for 2018/19. In the meantime you can download our current policies:

Please note that if your child is offered a nursery place it does not mean an automatic transfer to primary school. You will have to follow the admission procedures for applying for a primary school place for your child.
