ADMISSIONS & MOVING SCHOOL

 

 

For any assistance with School's Admissions, please see Mrs S Dawkins in the school office.  Alternatively, Mrs Dawkins can be contacted on 020 8472 0533.

There are different arrangements for children starting our school for the first time and for children joining at a later date.  

The staff, governing body and pupils of Monega Primary School would welcome you applying for a place at our school.  To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

We are an Multi Academy Trust which means we are our own admission authority but have adopted the London Borough of Newham’s admission arrangements and processes to ensure continuity across the borough.

All applications for this school must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.

NURSERY ADMISSIONS

We accept children's names for the nursery waiting list from their second birthday.  We cannot guarantee you a place but we do try to offer all children at least three terms in the nursery before entry to our school.

We offer children a morning only nursery placement or an afternoon only placement.  If you would like to put your child's name on our nursery waiting list we suggest you do this after their second birthday.  Please come to the school office on Tuesdays only, between 9:00am and 10:00am.

Please Bring with You:

  1.  Your most recent Council Tax Bill or if not available, your Tenancy Agreement or Rent Book.
  2.  Plus a Utility Bill, (Gas, Electric, Water, Landline phone).
  3.  As well as your child(rens') Birth Certificate or Passport showing their Date of Birth and Full Name.

STARTING SCHOOL FOR THE FIRST TIME

In Newham, children start primary school (Reception) in the school year during which they have their fifth birthday.  Entry is either in September or January depending on their birthday.

In the term before your child's admission is due, you will hear from Newham to let you know whether a place is available or not. If you are offered a place, write or call to accept it as soon as possible.  After this, the Education Department let us know you have a place and we will get in contact with you as soon as we can to arrange an admission interview.
