Cleveland Road Primary School


Joining a school for the first time can be a little daunting for some children so the admission process is given a high priority at Cleveland Road Primary School. Any parent or carer considering admission for their child is very welcome to contact the school to arrange a visit. 


Applications for admission into the Nursery should be made to the school but enrollment at other times is the responsibility of the Local Education Authority. Each school and Nursery class has an agreed number of children to admit each year.


If you want your child to attend our Nursery you should apply directly to the school. If allocated a place, children will usually start in the Nursery in the September after their third birthday.


Children normally start infant or primary school during the September of the year in which they are five.

Additional Information

Parents and carers needing to apply for their child to join the school at other times should contact the Admissions Team at Lynton House 020 8708 3147/ 020 8708 3127.
