School Admissions

Deptford Park takes 90 children into our three Reception classes each year in September.

Applications for a Reception place are coordinated by Lewisham Local Authority and must be made  by calling the Admissions team on 020 8314 8282 or online by registering with or through a link on

Our admission policy follows the guidelines set out by Lewisham Authority. Children are admitted under the following criteria

  • Children ‘looked after’ by the local authority
  • If they have a brother or sister already attending Deptford Park
  • Distance to school

Nursery Admissions?: Our nursery offers 16 full time places and 16 part-time places; 8 in each morning or afternoon session. Children usually start nursery the term after their third birthday, although this cannot be guaranteed. Admission to the nursery is based firstly on educational, medical and social need. The other criteria for entry are the same as for Reception class. Children, who are not offered a place, will be put on a waiting list at your request. Should a place become available we will contact you.

Please note – admission to the nursery does not guarantee a place in the school. There is no right to appeal to the nursery. Application forms for entry are available from the school office.
