Applying for a school place
Brimsdown Primary School admits 60 children into Nursery and 60 into Reception each September. (We offer 30 hours within our nursery – please speak with the office about this.) The school admissions policy is in line with London Borough of Enfield procedures. The Local Education Authority is responsible for admissions to our county schools, and any parent whose request for a place is refused has the right to appeal to this body.
Admissions criteria and details of how to apply for a school place online can be found by following the link below.
You can find our admissions policies below:
Children are admitted to the Reception classes during the autumn term of the school year (1st September to 31st August) in which they reach their 5th birthday. All children start school initially on a part time basis to help them settle in successfully. Children’s specific needs will be dealt with individually.
The application period for a Primary or Nursery place for September 2023 will be open from October 2022 – January 2023. Applications for the next academic year should be made here.
The school is committed to ensuring children settle into school happily. During the summer term prior to them starting school, parents receive information about their child’s induction process, including an information meeting and start dates.
