Nursery and Reception Intake

About our school provision...

Our ‘Hackbridge Corner’ site has a 52 part-time place nursery - one AM and one PM class (15 hours universal free education) - and three forms of entry (90 pupils) from Reception to Year 6.

Our ‘London Road’ site has a 26 full-time place nursery (30 hours free education (15 hours universal plus 15 hours extended entitlement)) and one form of entry (30 pupils) from Reception to Year 6. In 2021/2022, this site will house one form from Nursery to Year 3 as a result of our expansion from September 2018. The ‘London Road’ site will expand by a year group each year until it is fully one form of entry from Reception to Year 6 by September 2024.

 

Starting Reception in September 2022

PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM SEPTEMBER 2022, the use of our school sites will be as follows;

All pupils starting the school in Reception from September 2022 onwards will be educated on the Hackbridge Corner site. They will remain educated on this site until the end of their year in Year 2.

For their Years 3 & 4, all classes in the the year group will move to the London Road site.

For Years 5 & 6, the year groups will return to the Hackbridge Corner site.

At the current time, due to our coronavirus risk assessment, we are unable to offer face to face tours of the school. Instead, please view our virtual school tours here.

Applications for Reception places must be made via the website of the local authority in which you are resident and pay your council tax to. A link to Sutton's school admissions page can be found here.

For children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, the application round for September 2022 will open on 1st September 2021.

School Readiness

The Sutton School Nursing team will be offering a regular telephone clinic every Tuesday throughout the summer holidays between 10am - 1pm. Parents/carers are able to call the admin team on 020 8770 5409 during office hours (9am - 5pm) Monday to Friday to book an appointment for a telephone call on the following Tuesday. This will be available for families with children starting Reception class in September 2021 to discuss any concerns which they may have regarding their child's health, such as issues with eating/behaviour/bed-wetting.

The School Nursing Service have made a short video which you can see here.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

All parents are reminded that, as a four-form entry school across split sites, pupils will move between sites during the course of their primary education with us, as outlined under the arrangements from September 2022 onwards above.

We teach the children that they are part of a four-form, split site school and they are made familiar with the two school sites through visits and whole school assemblies throughout each year.

The Headteacher advises parents in the summer term each year if a year group cohort is being mixed into new class groupings. Such decisions are always made with the best interests of the whole cohort in mind.

The start and finish times of the school day are staggered across the two sites to allow for walking distance between sites for parents who are collecting from both sites.
