Admissions

Ordinarily, parents of prospective pupils are welcome to visit the school. As this is not currently an option, we are offering a virtual tour and a weekly online 'Question and Answer Session' with the Headteacher. 

The online Headteacher Q+A session will take place each Friday at 11:00am, in term time, from Friday 27th November until Friday 15th January. Please contact the school office at info@rushmore.hackney.sch.uk, by 5:00 pm Thursday, to request an invitation if you would like to attend a Friday session. 

Prior to attending the Friday Headteacher Q+A session please make sure that you have watched the school video tour.  

Please note that the Q+A sessions are for general questions. If you have questions relating to the particular circumstances of your child please email your questions to the office at info@rushmore.hackney.sch.uk and label them for the attention of the Headteacher.

Nursery Admissions

Parents wishing to apply for a Nursery place need to bring with them a copy of their children's birth certificate/s and proof of address (e.g. rent book, official letter). 

 We have a large two- form entry nursery. Our morning Nursery begins at 8.45am and ends at 11.45am; the afternoon Nursery starts at 12.15pm and ends at 3.15pm. If parents are eligible for 30 hours of childcare funding their children will attend from 8.45am to 3.15pm daily.

Top Ups-Additional hours can be paid for by parents, this depends on availability and the cost is based on your household income. Prices range from £23-£29 per session.

Applications for a nursery place can be made when a child reaches the age of 2. Generally,  children start in the nursery the term after their third birthday.

Transfer to the reception class in the main school cannot be guaranteed. Applications for Reception need to be made through Learning Trust.

Please contact the School Office for more information.
