Reception admission rules
Following a recent Consultation Yavneh Primary School has made some changes to its admission rules and Supplemental Information Form (SIF) for entry into Reception in September 2018. The amended rules and SIF can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Forms required by Yavneh Primary School:

Common Application form – All applicants

All applicants must complete the Common Application Form (CAF) for the Local Authority in which they live i.e. if you live in Barnet, Harrow, etc you complete the CAF for that Local Authority, even though Yavneh Primary School is a Hertfordshire school.

The CAF asks you to rank the schools of your choice in preference order. We strongly advise that if you wish to send your child to Yavneh Primary School, you should rank Yavneh Primary School as your first choice on the CAF.

Supplementary Information Form – All applicants

All applicants must also complete the Yavneh Primary School Supplementary Information Form (SIF), which must be returned to Yavneh Primary School by 15 January 2018. The SIF can be downloaded at the bottom of this page OR submitted electronically via the Online SIF. If you submit an electronic SIF, please do not send a paper copy as well.

Certificate of Religious Practice – Applicants seeking a faith based place

The admissions process for entry to Reception in September 2018 requires all applicants seeking a faith based place, including siblings, to also complete a Yavneh Primary School Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) establishing religious practice, based on the child’s synagogue attendance, Jewish education and/or family communal activity). The CRP can be found in the links on the right hand side of the page.

Only synagogue attendance from 1 May 2017 – 13 January 2018 will be relevant.  Applicants are strongly advised to contact a synagogue as soon as possible to establish what they need to do to be able to demonstrate attendance and get the CRP signed.

If sections 2 and 3 of the CRP need to be completed, applicants must make the necessary arrangements to ensure verification of the CRP by the individuals concerned. It should be noted that the CRP does not confirm that the child is Jewish in accordance with Jewish law.

Applicants also have to refer to the document describing the Jewish Ethos of Yavneh Primary School, which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

The completed, and signed, CRP must be sent to Yavneh Primary School by 15 January 2018.

SEN applications

Parents of children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Educational Health Care Plan are advised to apply through their Local Authority’s Special Educational Needs team. This is to ensure that the correct consultation procedure between parents, school, and SEN team at the Local Authority can take place. In accordance with the law, Yavneh Primary School will admit pupils with Statements of Special Educational Needs and or Education Health Care Plans that name the school.

We also ask that a SIF is completed for SEN applications.
