Download and complete our Supplementary Information Form.

Supplementary Information form 2022 entry

Complete this form and return it directly to Eden Primary at or to our postal address.

This form enables us to apply our admissions policy of admitting 50% of pupils on an open (distance) 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 other Jewish festivals in your own home).  The letters we require as evidence will take into account the circumstances of lockdown and covid-19 restrictions since March 2020.

Before filling in the form, please make sure that you have read and understood our Admissions Policy. Please do not send any utilities bills or other proof of address. This is not a requirement and we are unable to return them.

If there are any further Covid-19 restrictions, please let us know if you are unable to get your form signed and authorised by any nursery, school, synagogue or organisation as other arrangements for authorisation can be made if necessary.

For an overview you can visit our General Information page.

If you have further questions please email


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 immediately,  but if you wish to check that your form has arrived please email to check and allow several days for a response.

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 and can give more information if anything is not clear.  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.  If you miss the deadline please contact your local authority for advice.
