Ealing Council makes decisions for admissions to Little Ealing Parents for pupils entering Reception to Year 6, in-line with all local maintained community Primary schools. Prospective parents should contact Ealing Council to find out about admission arrangements and to enquire about waiting lists.
Ealing Council also publishes admissions criteria for all Primary community schooling the London Borough of Ealing each year.
We admit 90 children into each age group from Reception to Year 6, organised into 3classes.
Some children, for a variety of reasons, may want to join Little Ealing. These may be from other local schools, schools elsewhere in the UK or from overseas during the school year, all these admissions are classified as 'in-year' admissions.
All In-year admissions for Little Ealing are managed centrally by Ealing Council and are based on the current admission criteria for community schools.
Steps to take to join Little Ealing:
All admissions enquiries for Reception - Year 6 should be directed to Ealing Council.
To coincide with Ealing Council's annual admissions cycle, we usually host several information sessions during the autumn term to welcome prospective Nursery and reception parents to Little Ealing.
Our tour programme for entry in September 2021 will be virtual rather than in person. This is so that we can comply with our risk assessment and social distancing measures that have been implemented in school due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
