Applying for Reception September 2024

Applying for Reception September 2024


You can apply for your child to start reception if they were born between

1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020. 


*Every child MUST apply for their Reception school place, if you are currently attending Henry Green Nursery then you DO NOT automatically get a place in Reception. The allocations are made by the local authority and the school does not have any choice in which children are offered a place in Reception.*


Information about applying will be online from 1st November 2023

You will be able to apply for your child’s school place from
November 1st 2023 – January 15th 2024, you can submit your application any time between these dates, you are not given any priority by applying on the first day. The borough will allocate first to children with siblings already at the school (year R-5), looked after children, those with EHC plans and then they prioritize by distance.

We are also hosting a coffee morning on January 10th @ 8.30 am, where we will be offering support with completing your applications before the deadline (January 15th). Come and have a chat with our Parent Liaison support officer and SENDCo and we can answer your questions about starting school at Henry Green. 


Top tips!

- Please make sure you make all 6 choices of schools on your application, putting only one choice will not mean that you get allocated a place at that school.

- Please apply online before the 15th January 2024, late applications are unlikely to get their first choice schools.

- Please do not try to apply online before November 1st 2023, up to date information will be published about all the LBBD schools and how to apply ON November 1st 2023.

- Please attend one of our 'starting school' tours to see if Henry Green is the right choice for your child, we hope it is and look forward to seeing many of our Nursery children continuing their school journey with us.

- Please ask if you need help before making your application! Come along to our coffee morning on 10th January 2024 @ 8.30am in our parent hub if you need support to fill in your child's application.
