Children can start at Chelwood the term after their third birthday, starting in either September or January. Now that Lewisham has a single point of entry into primary schooling Chelwood’s main intake has become September each year, although places do become available at other times in the year.

Parents can view the admissions arrangements for Lewisham nursery schools on the council website by following the link below or by contacting the Council’s admissions team.

Lewisham admissions arrangements:

It is the Local Authority’s policy that children should attend for a minimum of three school terms, but we hope that children will attend for four or five terms where possible.

Places are offered in the Spring term for the following September intake.
