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).
