Subject to places being available pupils enter the nursery upon reaching their 3rd birthday. There are 40 places in the morning and 50 afternoon Nursery places, plus 10 places in the morning for nursery pupils in our Specialist Speech, Language and Communication Centre. (The primary school is a three form entry school with three classes in each year group).
Reception to Year 6: The Local Authority for your home address is required to co-ordinate all new applications for school places, and they, not the school, will send out the letter advising whether your application has been successful or not.
The criteria for admission are listed in order of priority as follows:
OUT OF BOROUGH PUPILS:
You are advised to contact the Admission Team in the borough where you live and complete their In-Year Common Application Form.
You can name this school as one of your preferences.
Telephone Numbers for our neighbouring boroughs are as follows:
Hillingdon: 01895 556644
Hounslow: 0208 891 7514
ADMISSION TO NURSERY:
Featherstone Primary and Nursery School will continue to maintain the waiting list for nursery places. Application forms can be obtained from the school office and once a place becomes available, parents will be contacted by the school’s Pupil Data Manager.
Criteria for allocating Nursery places:
1. Priority given to children returning and full-time children.
2. Children with a sibling in the school.
3. Children with medical needs if stated on application.
4. All remaining spaces are allocated by date of application.
There are 2 sessions, morning or afternoon. Parents/carers can state their first preference but the school is not able to guarantee that your child will be allocated your first choice. In June, parents/carers will be sent or given a letter stating whether they have been successful in gaining a place at the school and also stating if it is a morning or afternoon session. To help with their transition and settling in, there are home visits and a staggered start for all Nursery children. Parents will receive a letter with the relevant days and times.
On receiving their written notification, parents/carers who do not receive their preferred session, can request a change of space to either a morning or afternoon session and will be placed on a waiting list. If and when a space becomes available, we will notify parents and their child(ren) can change to their preferred session.

TRANSFER TO OTHER SCHOOLS:

Thank you for your cooperation.
You are reminded that it is your responsibility to advise the school, either now or at any time in the future, of any changes relevant to your application, such as change of address, contact phone numbers or factors relating to the admission criteria.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR VISITING THE SCHOOL:
The school always welcomes parents to the school to discuss their children’s progress. You may need to make an appointment.
In addition there are formal “Open Evenings” held each term. Parents are expected to attend and will receive information about how to make an appointment. Translators are usually available for parents who require them.
