Reception Offers and Acceptance
Reception Offers and Acceptance – what happens next?
Reception places are offered on 16 April. Once accepted all prospective parents/carers will be invited in the summer term, prior to admission in September, to an information coffee morning which is followed at a later date by a visit to the Reception class with your child. Children will be admitted under a phased approach, usually within three weeks of the start of term.
If, no places are available at Muswell Hill Primary a waiting list is held by Haringey School Admissions. Allocations will be made based on a space becoming available for the child at the top of the waiting lists and in the order of the admissions criteria for community schools. The school does not manage waiting list places. This list is coordinated and allocated by Haringey Council’s Schools Admissions Team.
Further Information for Parents/Carers
