Admissions Policy

Our current Admissions policy for Reception 2018 can be found here.

Our approach

Distance is not a barrier

We want everybody who supports our ethos, who fulfils the Jewish practice criteria and who wants to come to the school to have a chance to join our community, regardless of where they live. We use a ballot system to allocate the faith-based places, so that families who live further away have just as much chance of securing a place in the school as families who love close by. We believe that this innovative approach will create a community of families actively engaged with their children’s learning and Jewish education.

How to Apply

There are 30 places available in our Reception class each school year. After priority places have been offered, including siblings and children with an EHCP which names our school as outlined in our admissions policy, 50% of the remaining places will be offered purely on the basis of distance from a child's home to the school. The other 50% of the remaining places will be offered to families on the basis of Jewish practice, as evidenced via the schools Supplementary Information Form (SIF).

Our Admissions Policy can be downloaded from here.

Meet the Head Events for Prospective Parents

We are pleased to announce that, as in previous years, we will be holding a number of Meet the Head events for our Reception 2019 intake between October and December 2018.

Unlike many other schools, which have one or two large open days, we offer between 6 and 8 open days/evenings are which are small, giving parents an opportunity to meet our Headteacher and get a feel for our school and its community.  For this reason places at each session are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Please click here to register for one of our open days.  Once you have selected your 3 choices of dates please pencil these into your diary as we will be unlikely to confirm your allocation until the end of September and by then it may be difficult to make changes.

If you have any questions please contact us by e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I am afraid that we are unable to organise visits to the school outside our scheduled events.
