At The Devonshire Hill Nursery & Primary School we are committed to making all children feel safe and welcome from the day they enrol, helping them to develop a lifelong love of learning. Please see below for details of the school’s admissions procedures.
3 & 4 Year Old Nursery Admissions
All children are entitled to a free part-time nursery place the term following their third birthday. Please see the school’s Nursery Admissions Policy for further information. If you are interested in a place, please contact the School Office to arrange a visit or to collect an application form.
We also offer 30 hours free childcare to eligible families. It is available for families where both parents are working (or the sole parent in lone-parent families) and each parent earns the equivalent of 16 hours at national minimum wage and earns less than £100,000 a year. Parents can check their eligibility via Childcare Choices or apply online now. If eligible, you will receive an eligibility code which must be presented to the school for validation. Please see here for a summary of the process.
For families not eligible for the additional 15 hours of free childcare, the school does offer additional hours at an hourly rate. Please contact the school for further details.
Admissions to Reception
All children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 will need to apply for a Reception place for September 2021. Reception admissions are dealt with by the Local Authority. Please visit Haringey Council Reception Admissions 2020 for further information and details on how to apply. The deadline to apply for a primary school place is 15 January 2021. If your child attends our nursery, they will not automatically continue into reception year; you will need to complete an application.
All children aged five years and over must be in primary education. If you are new to the area or wish to transfer your child from another school, please visit Haringey In-year Admissions. to complete an e-Admissions form. Starting at a new school can be a difficult time for some children; our experienced Pastoral Care Team will meet you and your child, assess their needs and support them throughout their time at our school.
