Primary School Admissions 2019/2020

Dear parents and carers,

As your child is in our school nursery they will be due to start primary school in September 2019.

If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 you MUST apply for a school place online via Croydon Council admissions:

If you haven’t already done so, please remember to:

1. Find out about schools in Croydon – you are welcome to make an appointment to see our reception classes and meet the teachers at Purley Oaks.

2. Check the admissions criteria for your preferred schools – most schools receive more applications than available places.

3. Don’t delay, apply online today! Closing date 15 January 2019.

9 out of 10 parents apply on time. Parents who apply on time are more likely to secure a place at their preferred school.

Please find attached a letter and further information from Croydon Council.

If you need help applying for a school place please speak to a member of the nursery team or the school office.

Purley Oaks Primary School, Nursery and Children’s Centre.
