Jewish schools offer safe, caring and warm environments where children flourish personally and academically. Your child will learn about Jewish practices and values and enjoy the chance of celebrating the Jewish calendar. Many of us look back at primary school as a time of enjoyment, creativity and excitement in learning about the world. Jewish schools offer all this, plus the chance for you and your child to become part of a warm caring community.
You will need to contact the individual schools for their admission procedures. For voluntary-aided schools, application for reception is made through your home local authority as well as the school itself. If the school has a nursery which you are applying for, you need to contact the school about their admission procedures.
You should also be aware of the school's geographical location on our map, as the school nearest to your house may be in a different borough, although you would still need to apply through your home local authority, not the one in which the school is located.
There are over 30 Jewish primary schools in London and they are generally very popular. All voluntary-aided schools are governed by the same admissions code which gives preference, for example, based on how close you live to a school. At the same time the number of schools has expanded in relation to demand, so that there are many more school places available than some years ago. Not all areas are equally oversubscribed.
Additionally, due to aliyah or relocation, schools may have spare places in particular years. It is always worth checking with the school if this is the case and, in any event, making sure your name stays on their waiting lists.
No, a school cannot make attendance at its nursery a pre-condition for admission into its Reception class. It is unlawful to give Reception priority to the children who have been in their own nursery class. Parents may have felt that children were not yet ready for nursery, or they may have just moved into the area. You should check each school’s admissions policy, as they will vary.
CRP is shorthand for a Certificate of Religious Practice. For most Jewish schools, when applying for a Nursery or Reception place you will need to have completed one.
Local authorities for all voluntary-aided schools, free schools and academies will make their offers of Reception places on or around 16 April in the year when the child will be admitted (known as National Offer Day).
The dates for independent schools will vary and you should consult their individual websites for more information.
