Admissions

The staff, governing board and pupils of Park 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 a school maintained by London Borough of Newham which means they are the admission authority for this school.

All applications for places at this school (Reception – Year 6) must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.

Nursery Admissions

All applications for places at our nursery (Little Park Nursery) must be made directly through the school. Please contact us via email: info@park.newham.sch.uk or by calling the school main office on 02085344065 to request an application form or for any queries you may have.
We ask that parents and carers who are interested in our nursey register their initial interest in our nursery by filling out our INITIAL INTEREST FORM. Once we have received this form, one of our admin team staff will contact parents and carers directly.
Information about our EYFS provision can also be found in our Little Park Handbook  and Reception Handbook.

At Park we have adopted Newham’s Admission Arrangements. For further information, please see the information below provided by the Local Authority. Please note there are different arrangements for children starting school for the first time and for those joining our school mid phase. Our Admissions Officer, Zakiya Sharif is on hand to support you with any questions you may have.
