The admissions process for entry to Reception in September 2021 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).

Only synagogue attendance from 1 May 2020 – 11 January 2021 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 found in the links on the right hand side of the page.
The completed, and signed, CRP must be sent to Yavneh Primary School by 15 January 2021.
