There are three different processes to follow to apply for a place at Sunnyfields.

Mid-Year Admission to Current Reception to Year 6

If you are looking for a school place for your child during the academic year, you can contact the Barnet Admissions team who will process your application and allocate a place if one is available. Your application will be known as an ‘In Year Application Form’.

Barnet prefer that you apply online Click here: Mid-Year Admission to Current Reception to Year 6

If you are unable to apply online you can call the Admissions team on: 020 8359 7651 and they will send you a paper ‘In Year Common Application Form’ which you will need to return to them with the evidence they request.

Please note that if you live outside the London Borough of Barnet you will need to complete an application through your own local authority.

If we are over subscribed children’s names can be put on a waiting list or Barnet may offer you a place at another school.

Admission to Sunnyfields Nursery

All three and four-year-olds are eligible for up to 15 hours of free early education (FEEE) up to 38 weeks per year (term time only) free of charge. These 15 hours can be taken as flexibly as your childcare provider is able to offer. Children become eligible the term after their third birthday.

Your child can attend for 5 mornings (8:45 – 11:15am) or 5 afternoons (12:45- 3:15pm) each week. In addition your child may stay for lunch one day a week until 1:45pm. This will make up the time to 15 hours free provision.

If parents wish for their child to remain in nursery for more than 15 hours this can be arranged upon request for up to full time. You may ‘top up’ your child’s time in Nursery for £4 an hour if places are available.

Preference will be given to parents who are able to prove they are at work or studying.

You can apply for a place in our nursery by using this link to the application form Click here and return it via email to office@sunnyfields.barnetmail.net with the subject line ‘Nursery Application’ or you can request a paper application form from the school office.
