Children can start Nursery after their third birthday. Most children usually spend three or four school terms at Nursery before starting primary school.

To apply for a place for your child:
The school holds Nursery visits every Wednesday  morning between 9.30-10.30. You will be shown around the Foundation Stage by a member of staff with your child. You will be able to see the Nursery in action and ask any questions. You may fill in an application form at the school after your visit. If this is not convenient for you please contact Bernie Carty  in the school office.

If you have any questions about your child starting at Fulham Primary please do not hesitate to contact us.

We also welcome children from a range of nursery schools, other settings or from home. Hammersmith and Fulham Council co-ordinate all admissions to Reception classes at Fulham Primary. There are 60 places in our Reception class.

We know that this decision is an important one for your family. Please contact us to discuss your needs and visit our school. Our Headteacher, Leesa Schooneman, is always happy to meet you and answer any questions you may have.
