Admissions

General Information

Spencer Nursery School adheres to the admission policy of the London Borough of Sutton for places at the school.

All places offered are on a 50 week of the year basis.

In Fireflies, 4 year old children will be considered before 3 year old children, after which priority will be given on the basis of Special Educational Need (SEN), attendance of an older sibling or residency within the London Borough of Sutton. The school does admit children from neighbouring boroughs if places are available at the time of admission.

Admissions to Ladybirds (3 months to 2 years of age plus one term)

A waiting list is in operation for places within this unit. There are 12 private, full time, places per day in Ladybirds. Children can attend on anything from one day to five days, per week. Once a place becomes available families are contacted by telephone and an offer is made. If the first family contacted turns down the place the next family on the waiting list is contacted until the place is filled.  It is advisable to place your name on the waiting list as early as possible due to the high demand for places in Ladybirds.  Many families choose to apply for a place when they are expecting.  Please be aware that if you apply when you are expecting we would not contact you with regard to places until you have informed us of baby's date of birth and name.

To apply for a place, please fill out the relevant application form and return to the school office with £10.00 administration fee, which is non-refundable.

Admissions to Bumblebees (2 to 3 years of age plus one term)

Bumblebees currently offers 12 private, full time, places per day for 2 and 3 year olds. Children can attend on anything from one day to five days, per week. 

Waiting lists are in operation for places within Bumblebees.

To apply for a place, please fill out the relevant application form and return to the school office with £10.00 administration fee, which is non-refundable.

Admissions to Fireflies (3 years of age plus one term to 4 years of age)

In Fireflies, we have 24 places available each day. There are 8 places for children to attend from 8am-4pm and 16 places for children to attend from 8am-6pm for 50 weeks of the year.

Children are entitled to either 15 hours Free Education Funding or 30 hours Extended Entitlement Funding from the term after they are 3 years of age and this is accounted for within our fee structure.  

Attendance has to be for a minimum of three days a week.

Children who are not accomodated for a place will remain on the waiting list until a place becomes available. Families are welcome to get in contact with the school to find out if there is any progress.

Cautionary Note: - Although Spencer Nursery School will try to allocate places in the next units for children who attend Ladybirds and/or Bumblebees there is no guarantee of a place for when your child is due to transition. Individual advice will be given to all families.
