Admission Arrangements

The Nursery

If you are interested in a Nursery place for your child please contact the school when your child is 2 years old, although the length of time on a waiting list is not a criteria for admission to the Nursery.

The Nursery class has 26 morning and 26 full time places. Each child is offered five mornings or five full days per week. Children must be three before the beginning of the term in which they are admitted. Nursery education is not statutory. 

We are happy to announce that we now offer full time spaces through the 30 hour initative. Parents need to check with Greenwich Local Authority to see if they are eligible for a place. If you are eligible you will be given a code to provide to the school in order to validate. We also offer limited spaces for parents who wish to pay for a Nursery full time place. ​

Please see below for information regarding when your child can join Nursery.

The school admits pupils using the Greenwich criteria:

1) Looked after children and previously looked after children who have been adopted or become subject to a child arrangements or special guardianship order, immediately following having being looked after.

 Children who have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.   


A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society. 

2) Children or their immediate family member with a chronic medical condition or social care need for a particular school.

3) Royal Greenwich children ranked according to home to school distance.

4) Children living in other boroughs ranked according to home to school distance.

Children are admitted the term after their third birthday and parents will be contacted the term prior to admission. They will attend five days a week, for three hours each day.

The Primary School

We have one intake of new Reception children in September.  All applications for reception classes are dealt with by the Local Authority.

We warmly welcome visits from all prospective parents, carers and pupils. Please contact our school office to make an appointment.

Wingfield Primary School is consulting on its proposed admission arrangements for entry from September 2023 to bring them in line with other mainstream schools within the Compass Partnership of Schools, which remain in-line with the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

The consultation runs from 14th October - 2nd December 2021.
