Additional Resource Base Admissions

If you wish to apply for a place for your child to attend our additional resource base for Autism please contact the Borough of Merton directly with your child's EHCP Case officer. 

Making a Nursery 2022-23 application

Children born 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020

Children can start Nursery the term that starts after their third birthday. For some children this means that they could spend five terms in Nursery until they start Reception and for others it is a maximum of three.

All children born 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 should make their applications before the closing date 28 February 2022. If your child's date of birth fall outside this range, please see the relevant section below for further information.

Not all schools will admit children in January or April as priority is given to those who can attend from September. This ensures that more children have the opportunity to attend for three terms and only offering up to five terms where there are vacancies.

As well as ensuring the maximum number of families can have their full three terms in a nursery setting, this provides a more settled learning environment with less movement between schools and less disruption caused by new joiners in January.


Applying for a Reception place starting in September 2022

ll children can start Reception in the September following their 4th birthday. If your child attends a Merton School Nursery you will be provided with information at the correct time. If your child does not attend a Merton School Nursery, please return to this website the September after your child's 3rd birthday to make an online application.

The application process for children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 begins on 1 September 2021. If your child was born between these dates please read the following information carefully and ensure you have submitted your online application by 15 January 2022.

We would urge all parents to read through the starting primary school information online. If you are unable to do this, a copy of the Starting Reception 2022 - application booklet

Full details of Merton's admission arrangements can be found on our website.


The key dates for the Reception process can be found in the following table. Please ensure that you meet the date for submitting your online application. Submitting a late application could seriously jeopardise your chances of being offered a place at one of your preferred schools. You must apply for a Reception place even if your child currently attends the nursery at a school. Schools cannot guarantee places for children who are in their nursery, and your request to be considered for that school cannot be considered unless you submit a Reception application.
