Earlham is an inclusive school, and all children are welcome here regardless of academic ability or learning need. Children can be placed on the waiting list for the nursery after the age of 2 years. We will then let you know by letter when we have a place for your child—usually around the time they are 3½ years old. At that point, you will be given a date when you can meet the nursery teacher and register your child, and another date for your child to start in the nursery.

You should note that a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school.

Children join our reception class during the academic year in which they reach their fifth birthday.

We admit children into other year groups if we have a place available. All admissions are allocated by Newham; the school does not admit pupils directly.

Parents interested in applying for a place at Earlham should call The London Borough ofNewham on 020 8430 2000 and speak to Pupil Services as admissions are organised centrally.

If you are considering applying for a place for your child in our school, whether it is in the nursery, reception or any other year group, you are very welcome to look around either during or after the school day.

However, it is advisable to make an appointment so that a member of staff can be available to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
