Joining Little Ealing's Nursery:
The school itself currently handles admissions for our Nursery, but we use the same criteria as the London Borough of Ealing does for their school admissions (see below).
Children are eligible to start Nursery the September after they are 3. You can apply for a place once your child is 2, but when you apply makes no difference as long as you apply before the 15th January 2014 deadline (so children coming to Nursery in September 2014 must have applied by 15th January 2014).
Application forms are not available online and must be collected from the school. The application form, plus the originals of birth certificate and proof of address, must be returned to the school, where the school will take copies of the supporting documents.
Nursery places are allocated during January / February.
Joining Little Ealing in Reception Year:
The Local Education Authority is responsible for deciding and administering the admissions policy for this school and the admission process for Reception is handled centrally via Ealing Council.
Parents have a right to express a preference for the school they wish their child to attend. If a child lives in the catchment area for this school, he or she will have priority for a place. If there are more children living in the catchment area than there are places, the authority will allocate places on the basis of their admission criteria. The same criteria will be used to allocate any vacancies remaining after all catchment area children have been accommodated.
You can view Ealing's admission criteria and our cachement area on the documents at the bottom of this page.
Joining the school in other year groups:
In-Year admissions are also handled centrally by Ealing Council and are based on the same admission criteria. If you require an in-year place you will need to contact the admissions team at Ealing Council - www.ealing.gov.uk/info/13/primary_and_junior_school_admissions
Once you have been notified by Ealing Council of a place at Little Ealing you will need to make arrangements to visit the school. The Head or Deputy Head will normally meet you and your child(ren)and take you around the school and answer any questions you have. This is particularly important when a parent is transferring a child from another local school to Little Ealing Primary School; the Headteacher will need to meet parents and child(ren), prior to admission, to discuss the circumstances in which the proposed transfer is taking place.
Don't forget that the school holds regular tours for parents wishing to find out more about life at Little Ealing. You can find out more on our tours page -
