Fielding Primary School and Nursery


Main-round admissions

Our Nursery takes children aged between 3 years and up to 5 years old.

  • September 2020 Admission:
  • For children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017.

Main-round admissions to Fielding Nursery open on 1 December the year before starting Nursery the following September. Children can join us in the term following their third birthday, subject to availability of sessions.

Admission to Fielding Nursery is managed by the Governing Body.  

Admission to Fielding Nursery does not guarantee admission to Fielding Primary School Reception Year. Reception Year admission application is via Ealing Council and all enquiries should be directed to the main-round admissions department.


*Admissions for academic year 2020/21 are now closed*

Admissions are now closed in-line with Ealing Council's Reception application period.

September 2020 waiting list

The waiting list will open within the spring term, please check back after the February Half Term.


Academic Year 2019/2020 

Nursery is currently full. Due to overwhelming demand for places, we have now closed the waiting list. Parents who completed the waiting list application will be contacted in due course if we are able to offer your child a place at Easter. We strongly advise parents to explore alternative settings/provision in the local area in the event that we cannot offer your child a place.


Fielding nursery will  only take new pupils, outside of the main-round intake in September, after the Christmas and Easter holidays. The Nursery Manager is unable to offer nursery visits or discuss admissions with parents and you are advised to visit the school on one of our official tours for more information.


Admissions criteria

Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, in order of priority:

  1. Children in Public Care – children taken into Public Care via section 20 or 38 of the Children’s Act. Looked after children or children who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements order, or special guardianship order.
  2. Where the child has a sibling currently attending Fielding Primary School and the sibling will still be in attendance at applicant’s admission. Sibling refers to: brother or sister, half-brother of sister, adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the child of the parent/carer’s partner, and in every case, the child should be living in the same family unit at the same address.
  3. Current nursery pupils returning for a 2nd year.
  4. Children taking the highest number of hours per week.
  5. Proximity to school. The distance from home to school is measured by straight-line, from a point in the property to a point in the school determined by the grid references for the centre of the school’s postcode

Please note that once the first round offers have been made, the admission criteria no longer applies to further round offers.


Personal hygiene

As children grow and develop they become increasingly independent and confident in everyday tasks such as toileting and hand washing and if your child is joining us in nursery for September please encourage and nurture this independence by offering encouragement and showing them what to do. If your child is experiencing toileting issues please ensure you let us know as it may be necessary for a care plan to be put into place.
