Admissions

Admissions at Launcelot Primary School Nursery and Reception classes are determined by Lewisham Council’s admission arrangements. If more parents want places for their children than there are places available, Lewisham Council will apply their published admissions criteria (listed below) to decide which applicants are offered a place. Priority will be given in the following order:

  • Children in care, including those children who have been adopted, or become subject to a residence or special guardianship order
  • Children with exceptional medical or social needs for a particular school (as supported by professional documentation).
  • Children whose brother or sister (including half brothers or sisters and foster brothers or sisters residing at the same address) already attend Launcelot Primary School.
  • Children living closest to the school (all distances are measured in a straight line)

In exceptional  circumstances a child may be given priority on the grounds of an acute medical or social need, where the application is supported in writing by a professional.

Children of teachers may be given priority of admission if this allows the teacher to take up or retain a teaching post.

Parents may appeal the decision, under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. Forms are available from Lewisham Education (020 8314 6211) or the main office.

Applying for admission to Nursery
Children can start in the Nursery the September after their third birthday. Nursery place applications can be made directly through the school office by collecting an application form from the Reception desk and returning it directly to the school once completed. Having a nursery place at Launcelot Primary School gives no guarantee of a place in one of our Reception classes.

Applying for admission to Reception
Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday. Parents may apply for a reception place any time after the child reaches the age of three and will be notified if they have been successful by the Local Authority.

Applications are made through the Local Authority preferably on line by visiting www.eadmissions.org.uk or by using a Common Application Form (CAF) available from Lewisham Admission and Appeals Team at Laurence House.

Applications for entry in September 2018 have to be made by 15th January 2018. Offers of a place will be made on Reception National Offer Day 16th April 2018.


Applications are made through the Local Authority preferably on line by visiting www.eadmissions.org.uk or by using a Common Application Form (CAF) available from Lewisham Admission and Appeals Team at Laurence House.

 

Applying for admission to other year groups
Any ‘In-Year’ applications should be made directly to Lewisham Admission and Appeals Team on 020 8314 8282 or by email schooladmissions@lewisham.gov.uk. If you are applying from another Lewisham school you will first need to meet with the Head Teacher of the current school to discuss your reasons for wanting to move.

Transfer to secondary school
The secondary transfer process from Primary to Secondary education starts at the Autumn term when your child is in Year 6. The following link gives you up-to-date information and key dates.
