Apply for a place

The Noor Ul Islam Primary School started in September 2001. Since we started more parents have shown an interest in sending their children to our school. As demand exceeds the number of spaces available it is necessary for us to have an admission list. This list contains details of those who have shown an interest in admitting their children.

To add your child's name to the list you will need to include an Initial Application Form which you will need to complete and return to the school with a cheque for £20 made payable to Noor Ul Islam School Fund. (This fee is to add your child's name to the list and does not cover any of the school fees.) We will then send you an acknowledgement of receipt together with a unique application reference number.

If you do complete the admission list form, you must advise us of any changes when they occur eg address/telephone number, child attending the pre-school.

Scoring applications
We will not be in a position to advise you on the progress of your application until a place is available. When a place does become available we will review the admission list for that particular class, assess applications and implement our admission policy. The following are some of the points considered:

  • Whether the child attended the Noor Ul Islam Pre-School * (place not guaranteed);
  • Whether the child has a brother / sister already attending the Noor Ul Islam Primary school;
  • How soon after the child reached three years was the application submitted;
  • Proximity to the school.

At the meeting, the following documents must be produced:

  1. Child's birth certificate
  2. Existing school reports

Once the meeting is held a place may or may not be offered to the child. 

Fees 2018-2019
If a place is offered and you accept it then a Registration fee (£500) must be paid within a specified time, usually one week. If a place is offered at the beginning of the academic year but not taken up at that point in time the child's name will be taken off the waiting list. 

The school fees for the Reception class are £4200 per year (separate from the one-off registration fee). Parents are also eligible for a discount off the fees via the FEEE grant (typically £800-£1500 depending on when your child turns 5). The amount of the FEEE grant is determined by the term in which your child turns 5. Please call the school office for more details.

The school fees for the rest of the school are £3200 per year (separate from the one-off registration fee).

Parents are advised not to rely solely on their application to Noor Ul Islam Primary School but to also apply elsewhere as places are not guaranteed. Also note that the Noor Ul Islam Pre School is not an automatic feeder to the primary school. Attending the Pre-School does not guarantee your child a place at this primary school.

Summer born children

Parents who choose to extend their child's time in nursery because they are summer born should note that we do not offer entry points into Year 1. A place is only offered in Year 1 if a child leaves the Reception class. The offer of the place will follow our standard procedures as mentioned above.

The school reserves the right to amend its admission policy at any time. Please see our admission policy for more details.
