Admissions

Heavers Farm Reception Admissions 2021/22

Children enter our Reception classes at the beginning of the school year in which they will reach their fifth birthday. All places are full time. All applications MUST BE SUBMITTED TO CROYDON using the methods described below.

Open Days

Sadly, due to current restrictions will are not able to offer open days in order to allow parents of children due to start Reception in September 2021 to look around the school prior to making their school applications.

We are currently working on providing a virtual tour of our school and we will provide more information on this page as soon as we are able to.

Croydon Admission Arrangements for Reception

We are a community school this means that we follow Croydon’s admissions criteria.

NURSERY – LITTLE GEMS

Our school has a nursery class for 3-4 year olds, providing for 52 part-time places, of fifteen hours per week. If you would like to apply for a place for your child in our nursery class, please contact the school for further information, a copy of the application form, and the timescales for applying. If we receive more applications than there are places available at that time in our nursery class, we use the same admissions criteria as we use for reception admissions to prioritise applications.

Parents should be aware that attending the nursery class does not mean your child will automatically transfer to the reception class at this school. You will still need to apply at the appropriate time for a place for your child in a reception class, using the council’s Common Application Form, as described above.

Year 1 to Year 6 in-year Application Process

Admission to Years 1 to 6 is administered by Croydon’s School Admissions department. You will need to fill out a form on the In Year Admissions page.

You are very welcome to visit our school before applying for a place. You can either telephone on 020 8653 5434 and ask for Cleo Douglas, or email her on  cdouglas7.306@lgflmail.org and she will arrange a time for a visit.
