Children are admitted into our school according to agreed guidelines, laid down by the Croydon Education Authority. Modifications may prove necessary from time to time in order to comply with both local and central government legislation.
Parents should express their school preferences by completing the online admission form. Unfortunately, we must stress that completion of this form in no way guarantees a place at the school. On National Primary Offer Day (16th April each year), parents are informed of which school Croydon Council's Admissions Team have offered their child.
At Park Hill Infants, many factors influence exactly when a child will be admitted to school. As a general guide however, children who reach the age of five in the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms are currently admitted on the following basis:
- Autumn born (five in September to December): admitted in early September
- Spring born (five in January to April): admitted in early/mid September
- Summer born (five in May to August): admitted mid/end of September
All children start on a part-time basis initially, dependent on the child’s date of birth. When your child is offered a place, you will be sent our school forms to complete. We ask that you bring these, together with either your child’s birth certificate or passport to one of the visits, arranged in order for both parents and their child to familiarise themselves with our school community, prior to the child’s admission into school.
