    We welcome you to visit our school before enrolling your child. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment where a member of staff will show you around.

    Two Year Olds

    Two Year Old Provision

    We provide an excellent start for early learners in the 2 year old provision based within our school.

    We offer part time and full time paces (additional fee) and wraparound care from 8:00am - 6:00pm.

    The government have recently updated the eligility criteria for Two Year childcare and as such we are asking all families who are interested to apply. We will then work together to check what you are entitled to. 


    Nursery Admissions

    Children who are 3 years old are able to make an application to the Nursery in our school.

    A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school but children meeting the Local Authority’s entry requirements will move on to the reception class. Visit the Hackney Education website to check your eligibility for free childcare.


    Reception Admissions

    Shacklewell Primary School is governed by Hackney’s admission procedures and as such the deadline to apply for a September 2024 start has passed. 

    If you would like further details of the admissions criteria and details on how to apply then please click the link below.

    If you are looking ahead and would like to apply for a September 2025 Reception admission then please do contact us via the office to book a tour.
