Admissions

Joining Stanhope Nursery

Stanhope Nursery welcomes children from the age of 3. The school itself currently handles admissions for our Nursery.

 

Children are eligible to start Nursery the term after their 3rd birthday.

All parents are entitled to the Universal 15 hours of Government funded childcare a week for children aged 3 and 4 years old. All children entitled to this funding the term after they turn 3 years old. Their birthday must fall before the cut-off date in order to receive funding the following term.

 

These dates are:

  • 31st August for the Autumn term (September - December)
  • 31st December for the Spring term (January - April)
  • 31st March for the Summer term (May - August)

 

Stanhope are delighted to offer 30 hours free childcare for eligible parents.

 

In addition to the 15 hours Nursery provision for all children, working parents will be able to get an additional 15 hours free childcare, bringing the total number of hours to 30 a week for children aged 3 and 4 years.

 

The 30 hours will be offered over 5 days, from 9:00am – 3:30pm. A short break will be taken during lunchtime where the children will make their way to the dining hall to eat their lunch (either a packed lunch brought in from home or a school meal purchased through Harrison Catering).

To qualify for the 30 hrs:

 

  • Both parents are in work
  • Single/sole parent is in work
  • Be employed or self-employed
  • Each parent earns less than £100,000 per year
  • One parent works and one is on specific disability or caring benefits
  • Parent/s work/s for at least 16 hours or on zero hour contract/s

 

A joint online application system via https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/ will provide simple and straightforward access to register on the scheme. Checking of eligibility will be undertaken by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

 

NB: The school is able to offer additional 15 hours to those not eligible for the funded hours. A fee will be charged and we would be happy to accept Childcare Vouchers by way of payment.

 

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.

 

 

Joining Stanhope in Reception:
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.

You can view Ealing's admission criteria on the documents at the bottom of this page

Joining the school in other year groups (in year admission):
In-Year admissions are also handled centrally by Ealing Council and are based on the current admission criteria. If you require an in-year place you will need to contact the admissions team at Ealing Council.

Once you have been notified by Ealing Council of a place at Stanhope you will need to make arrangements to visit the school. The Head or a member of the admission team 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 Stanhope Primary School.
