Star Primary is a community school which means the London Borough of Newham are our own admission authority. Our published admission number (PAN) is 90 per year group, Reception to Year 6. If the number of applications for school places is greater than places available in each year group, priority for admissions is given in the following order:

Priority 1: Looked after children and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements or special guardianship).

Priority 2: Children who have been assessed by Newham Council’s Special Educational Needs Service as requiring a particular named school to meet their special educational needs and/or physical access. In addition the child must be on the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice and be in receipt of ‘high needs funding’ and/ or have physical access difficulties.

Priority 3: Children who have a sibling on roll and are reasonably expected to still be on roll at the time of admission in the school.

Priority 4: Children whose parent/carer (with legal parental responsibility) are directly employed by the school.

Priority 5: Service children.

Priority 6: All other children, whether or not they live in Newham.

Nursery Admission

Nursery Information

We accept children’s’ names for the nursery waiting list from their second birthday, however we can never guarantee a place. This is not ‘first come, first served’ but we try to offer all children three terms in nursery before they start school. Please note that a place at our nursery will not gain automatic entry into our school.

An online application form is available here. To accompany your application we require a proof of address and a copy of your child’s birth certificate. We will need to see these documents once your child has been offered a place. If you have any queries then please call us on 020 7476 5336.​
