Nursery Admissions Criteria

John Donne Primary School is an academy school and we welcome children of every faith and from every background.

We are committed to include all children, able bodied or disabled, gifted or with special needs. We will adapt our school where possible to meet with any child’s special needs. If you would like to see a copy of our accessibility plan please ask the school office.

We follow the admissions procedure agreed by the southwark admissions forum.


Over-subscription Criteria for Nursery

In the event that there are more applications than there are places available, places will be allocated in the following order of priority:

  1. Children in public care (Looked After Children);

  2. Children with educational, medical or social needs where professional advice indicates that placement would be beneficial; this includes children with a statement of special educational needs which names the nursery class;

  3. Children who will have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of entry;

  4. Children for whom it is their nearest maintained nursery class or nursery school.
