At De Lucy, we have 52 part-time places, although we also offer full-time places via the 30 Hours Funding or paying for top-up.
All children are entitled to 15 hours at Nursery once they are 3 years and one term. Applications for Nursery are made via the school. Please collect an application form from the school office.
At De Lucy, we will admit a maximum of 60 children into the two Reception classes each September.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2021 (born between 1st September 2016 - 31st August 2017) you need to apply for a place between September 2020 and January 2021. The easiest way to apply is through the eAdmissions portal - it is quick, easy and secure - and it is the fastest way to hear the results. If you would rather complete a paper form, you must complete the Royal Borough of Greenwich's common application form.
If you live in another borough, you need to apply through your home authority even if you wish to apply for a place in a Royal Greenwich school.
In–Year School Admissions
If you are allocated a place at De Lucy, a member of our school office will be in contact to arrange a suitable time for you and your child to come and visit the school.
During the visit, you will have the opportunity to complete any necessary forms as well as have a tour of the school building to familiarise your child with their new school. The visit is also a great opportunity for your child to meet their class teacher and new class; this is a really useful way of supporting their transition into their new school.
Upon completion of all the relevant forms, purchasing of school uniform and meeting the class teacher, your child will usually start at school within a week. It is normally preferred to start at the beginning of the week as it is quite often the start of new learning units.
