A Jewish school where everyone is welcome

Apply for a 2017 place

It’s time to start thinking about joining Reception in 2017.

Children born between 01 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 can start school in September 2017. If your child was born between those dates, read on!

Primary school applications for 2017 opens on Thursday 1st September 2016. The closing deadline is Monday 16th January 2017 (date to be confirmed).

Just follow these three steps:

STEP 1.

Download and complete our Supplementary Information form 2017 entry. This enables us to apply our admissions policy of admitting 50% of pupils on an open basis and 50% on the basis of Jewish practice.

The tie-breaker for all criteria is children living closest to the school as measured in a straight line from the child’s front door to the main entrance of the school. If there are 2 or more applications that are equidistant, random allocation (supervised by a person independent of the school) will be used to decide between them.

It is not a legal requirement that you fill in this form. Without it you are still eligible for an ‘Open’ place at Eden Primary.

However if you do practise Judaism in any one of the ways specified in our Supplementary Information Form then you should complete the form. (That is, any ONE of the following: synagogue attendance or membership, voluntary work in the Jewish community, previous attendance by your child at a Jewish nursery, or regular observance of Shabbat or festivals in your own home.)

Before filling in the form, please make sure that you have read and understood our Admissions Policy. It explains clearly how we manage the applications and how to fill in the form.

For an overview you can visit our General Information page.

STEP 2.

After filling in the Supplementary Information form, please either send in the post or scan and email  it to us.  We are unable to send routine acknowledgments but if you wish to check that your form has arrived please email to check and allow several days for a response.

The email address is: andrea@edenprimary.org.uk

The postal address is:

STEP 3.

Fill in the standard primary school application form from your local authority. This form allows you to list up to six schools in order of preference.

Note: if you put Eden Primary as first preference and you are not initially offered a place, you will remain on the waiting list and may be offered a place a few weeks later. If you put another school as first preference, and you are offered a place there, then you will not be kept on the Eden waiting list.

Your local authority will provide you with the necessary form. As Eden Primary is in Haringey, the information about our school can be found here.

Please apply using the e Admissions website which coordinates applications across all the London boroughs. The eAdmissions website re-opens on the 1st September 2016 for new applications to schools for September 2017.

Closing date for applications is 16th January 2017. If you make a late application, you will automatically go on to a waiting list.
