LPA Nursery Poster 2018-19(April Intake)


LPA Nursery Places

We have three intakes per academic year (depending on places available). We take children a term after they are 3 years old.

In order for you to apply for a place you will need to come in to the school to collect an application form. A birth certificate and proof of address is needed to complete the application.

When it is time for your child to start in the Nursery, we will contact you by letter to see if you still require a place and a home visit will be arranged. On the home visit a member of staff from the Nursery will complete the new admission paperwork and any medical forms that may be required.

We ask that you inform us if you move house or change your telephone number as this could result in your child not receiving a place.

Admission to years 1-6 [and mid-year Reception]

All applications to Lansdowne Primary Academy [other than Reception starters in September] will be administered directly by the school.

Please download our admissions form [link to application form] and complete in full. 

Please note:

  • That we will not be able to consider any application that is not completed in full;
  • The admission deadlines and admission entry point towards the end of the policy;
  • That we will maintain a waiting list for each year group that is currently full.


Reception Foundation Stage

To apply to start Reception in September applications must be submitted directly to Thurrock Council Education Department.

Click above to apply from 1 November 2019 – closing date is 15 January 2020.  A late application means there will be far less chance of your child being offered a place at the school you want.
