Admissions

Admission to the Nursery Class

Children are admitted to the Nursery Class in the September following their third birthday, and in accordance with the guidelines set out by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

The Nursery currently has places for up to 30 children.   If there are more applications than places available, the Headteacher will decide on the basis of the following considerations:

  • Children in the care of the local authority, or who have an Educational Health Care Plan which names the school, will have priority.
  • Children living closest to the school.  Distance will be measured 'as the crow flies'. Accessibility by car or public transport will be disregarded.  Having a brother or sister at the school does not give automatic entry.
  • The preservation of a balance in the number of girls and boys, and a balance of ages.
  • The exceptional educational, medical or social needs of the child.  In exercising judgement on this, the Headteacher will consider the child’s cognitive, physical and linguistic needs, as well as family circumstances.  Evidence must be provided by professionals, such as social workers, health visitors or education welfare officers, in order for the Headteacher to take these needs into consideration.
  • Children whose parent is a qualified teacher in the school.

Admission to the Reception Class

Children are admitted to the Reception Class in the September following their fourth birthday, and in accordance with the Admissions Policy set out by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. We have places for up to 60 children.

Priority is given:

  • to children who are in the care of the local authority, or who have an Educational Health Care Plan which names the school.
  • to brothers and sisters of children already on the roll of the school
  • children whose parent is a qualified teacher in the school
  • to children who live nearest to the school (approximate offer area)

Admission to Years 1 – 6

If vacancies arise, children will be admitted during the school year, with priority given:

  • to brothers and sisters of children already on the roll of the school
  • to children who live nearest to the school

Applications for admission to Bousfield must be made on the Royal Borough’s application form which is available online or from the school, public libraries and the Town Hall.
