George Carey Primary School is a very popular and successful school with a long waiting list.
How to Apply (Reception – Year 6)
You can apply for children to come to George Carey Church of England Primary School by visiting the Admissions Team at Barking One Stop Shop in the Learning Centre, Barking IG11 7NB or Dagenham Library, the Heathway, RM10 9QQ. Please note that all admissions other than Nursery, are dealt with by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
Waiting List – Nursery
Parents may place their child on the Nursery waiting list by completing a green form, available from the school office and providing their child’s birth certificate or passport and proof of address. When a space is available, you will be contacted by telephone and a home visit will be arranged previous to your child starting the Nursery. The Nursery waiting list is arranged by the school.
Admissions to Reception
The admissions process for securing a Reception place usually starts as early as November in the year before the child starts school. All admissions to and between schools within the Local Authority, including starting Reception, is administered “centrally” by the Local Authority’s Admissions Team. Parents wanting a place in the school should complete the relevant documentation and return it to the Local Authority or apply on-line. Help and advice will be provided to parents/carers by the school. We must emphasise that a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception.
