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. 

Nursery Admissions for September 2019/January 2020

There will be two Nursery intakes for next academic year. All children must be 3 years old on or before 31st August for the September intake or 31st December for the January intake in order to be eligible for a place in the Nursery. Your child must be three years old to be able to start our Nursery.

Application forms for your child’s Nursery place are currently available from our main school office. Nursery applications cannot be completed online.

The deadline for Nursery applications for our September 2019 intake is Friday 5th April. Applications submitted to the Academy after this date will be considered late.

All 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 2016 and 31 August 2017 will begin on 1 September 2020. 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 2021

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 Primary School 2021 booklet

Full details of Merton's admission arrangements can be found on our website, however the information provided on these pages contains everything you need in order to make an application.


Applying for a Reception place starting in September 2021

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.

If you do not have access to a computer or you would like some help applying for a school place, please make an appointment with Hannah in the school office; she will be more than happy to help you.


In Year Applications

If you are looking for a place in Harris Primary Academy Merton because you have recently moved into the area or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being you are entitled to apply for a place.

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to Harris Primary Academy Merton. Please contact admissions at the Academy (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form or download a form (see below). Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available but you have the right to appeal if you are refused a place.
