Newham has an Admissions Policy which we follow. Applications for places are dealt with by the pupil services section of the local authority.

Parents who wish to apply for a nursery place or school place may register the child once he/she has had their second birthday. Registration forms can be collected from the school Administration Office.

All parents of Reception children are invited to a meeting with the class teacher in the term before their child is due to start.

Parents who wish to apply for all other school places are asked to complete an application form which will be sent up to the Education Department, who will allocate places as available.

Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school – including those with available places is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behavior. Scott Wilkie primary school has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.


Nursery: How to Apply

You can apply at anytime but we only accept children once they are 3 years old and a term after there 3rd birthday. We also take on 2 year old childing providing that you meet the 15 hour funding and have the golden ticket.

Determined Admission Arrangements – September 2024

The law requires that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined by admission authorities.

This school is an academy and part of Agate Momentum Trust which means we are our own admission authority.  Scott Wilkie governing body has formally agreed to adopt the London Borough of Newham’s Admission Arrangements for September 2024 entry.
