Croydon Admission Arrangements for Reception 2018/19

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

This step-by-step breakdown takes you through the process of applying for a school place for those starting reception in 2018.

The 2018/19 application process starts on 1 September 2017.

For all of the information on how to apply please go to: Primary schools Admissions – 2017/18 .


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.

Applications for places must be made on a ‘Heavers Farm Admission to Fox Cubs Nursery’ form to be received at the school office by 31 January 2018.

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 and she will arrange a time for a visit.
