 **Update December 2020**
Unfortunately due to Covid, we are unable to offer school tours to prospective parents.  Please click on the link below for a virtual tour of our school instead.  If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to call the school. 

 

Nursery
We offer a morning session (8:45am – 11:45am) and an afternoon session (12:30-3:30pm) with a maximum of 39 children in each session.  Children are admitted to our Nursery the term after their third birthday. 

We also offer 30 hour places for eligible parents.  If you are not eligible for 30 hours we do offer the option of paying for a full time session and the charge for this is currently £90 per week. Please call the office for more information.  Please see the government website for more information around eligibility www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare.

Please note that admission to the nursery does not guarantee your child a place in the main school.  You will need to apply as normal, via eadmissions, for a reception place.

Reception Admissions
We are a two-form entry primary school admitting 60 children to Reception each year.

In Year Admissions
You will need to complete an In-Year Transfer Form which can be obtained from Merton Council or from our school office. 

School Open Days
We regret that due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are unable to do school tours at present, however we are hoping to reinstate these as soon as we can.

If you have any questions about admissions, please email school@garfield.merton.sch.uk or call 0208 540 1053
