The School has a one form entry with a capacity of 30.

 

Applying to All Saints’

Reception Class Admissions

Your Local Authority will have a Starting Schools booklet detailing the processes and schools available within their authority. This may be accessible on their website. Details about All Saints’ will be found in the Lewisham Starting Schools guide. If you are applying for a church place (Foundation Place) you will need to fill in a supplementary form which your local clergy should complete and return to school. This can be obtained from the school or is available below.

Casual admissions and admissions during the year

In the first instance you should always contact your home Local Authority and ask to speak to admissions. They will be able to advise you what you should do next: All Saints’ cannot offer places directly the offer must come from the Local Authority.

 

Admission Arrangements for Pupils with SEN and Disabilities (SEND)

Parents who wish to apply to our school on the basis that their child has a special educational need or disability may apply for a medical / social place, under the Open Category of our Admission Policy.

 

Prospective parents

There are a number of prospective parents meetings arranged in the Autumn term to give you an opportunity to see the school in action and meet the children. Where possible Year 6 will give you a uncensored tour! Please feel free to ask them anything. If you are unable to attend or are starting school at a different time during the year, please contact the school to arrange a visit.
