Reception Offers and Acceptance

Reception Offers and Acceptance – what happens next?

Reception places are offered in April. Once accepted all prospective parents will be invited to an information evening this is followed by a visit to the Reception class with your child during the summer term prior to admission. Immediately before admission there will be the opportunity for home visits by Reception staff and the children will be admitted under a phased approach, usually within three weeks of the start of term.

Waiting Lists

If, no places are available at Tetherdown a waiting list is held. Allocations will be made based on a space becoming available for the child at the top of the waiting lists and in the order of the admissions criteria for community schools. The school does not manage waiting list places. This list is coordinated and allocated by Haringey Council’s Schools Admissions Team.
