Applying For Reception

Dear Parents & Carers,    

I know it feels far into the future, but it is now time for you to start applying for your child’s Reception place in September 2021. 

Tower Hamlets are offering a virtual workshop to explain the application process on the 2nd of December. If you need additional support, please contact our Parent Support Worker – Rushnara – on 07955 736 776 or 0207 987 4564 as soon as possible to make an appointment with her.

Please remember, even if your child has a place at The Clara Grant Nursery, you must still apply for their Reception place. Also, if you would like them to continue at our school, please note that you will find the school under the letter for The Clara Grant Primary School on the admissions portal.

Once you have applied, please let us know at the gate for our own records.


With best wishes,



EYFS Coordinator & Nursery Teacher
