If your child was born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 application packs will be distributed to Nursery children in Merton Primary schools in September. If your child does not attend nursery class at a Merton school, you can apply online through eAdmissions or contact your local primary school for an application pack. Applications can be made online from 1 September 2013.
The Starting Primary School Brochure 2014 contains all the information you need to make an application, including how places were allocated last year.
Due to an increase in demand for Reception places over the last few years, and an expected demand for places in the September 2014 intake, we are making arrangements to meet this additional demand. Please see the section Increased demand for Reception places for further information.
