What does Maryland offer in terms of Early Years Provision?
How do I apply for a nursery place?
If you would like to apply for a place on our waiting list please complete our ‘application for nursery form’ and then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org . You will receive acknowledgement of receipt within 5 days of your submission.
We have limited 30 hour places for eligible families – if you are interested in applying for a place please complete the 30 hours interest form which is available from the school office.
How do I apply for a reception place?
Please contact pupil services by clicking this link http://newhamconnect.uk/Services/5616 . We do not direct these admissions – they are designated to us centrally via Newham pupil services. They will notify you directly if you have been given a place.
I have been informed that my child has a place at Maryland, what happens next?
Each year, as part of the admission process during June and July we would normally organise home visits as well as invite families to attend the school. This not only allows families to familiarise themselves with the Maryland setting but they would also attend a welcome presentation delivered by the senior leadership team. However due to Covid 19 we have had to change our usual arrangements. We are now organising staggered admission meetings whilst keeping in-line with our risk assessment and government guidelines. This year we will also be using our website to welcome our families. Please see below:

If your child has secured a place, you will need to download the following documents (if you attended a face-to-face admission meeting you will have been provided paper copies already):
- Summer home learning pack
- Nursery admission info booklet or
- Class 1 Reception admission info booklet or Class 2 Reception admission booklet
You can also read Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance to see key developmental milestones that Maryland’s Early Years curriculum aims to help our children achieve.
What documents does the school need from me? How should I get these to the school and when?
You will need to ensure that the following documents are completed (click to download forms):
In order to process these forms and personally welcome you ahead of your child’s start date you will have 2 options:
1. Bring the completed forms to a meeting with a member of the senior leadership team on the school premises.
2. Complete the forms digitally & scan verification documents and then send these to the school ahead of an organised virtual meeting using Google Meet (video call) with a member of the senior leadership team (original copies of the ID will need to be provided to the school in September).
Can I purchase uniform from the school?
Yes. If you would like to view uniform in person and/or would like to purchase – we are arranging for parents to visit the school with staggered timings so we ensure social distancing is in place. If you are having a face-to-face admission you will be given the opportunity to view and purchase uniform then.
