Children start primary school at the beginning of the academic year during which they turn five. At Eversley we admit 90 children to Reception each September, and all applications are processed by Enfield Schools Admission Service who are based at the Civic Centre in Enfield.
Eversley is committed to inclusive learning for all. Inclusive education means that where possible we will offer a place to all local children who wish to come to the school so long as we are able to meet their needs.
Parent Tours – We are always pleased to welcome prospective families
When applying for your Primary School place, we would always encourage you to visit the school prior to your application.
At Eversley we hold our parent tours on most Tuesdays, during the Autumn and Spring term. Our Parent Tours start at 9.15am and this gives parents an opportunity to see the school in action during a normal school day. The Parent Tours usually last for about an hour, and are carried out by our Headteacher or a member of staff from our Leadership Team.
Visits can be arranged by contacting the school office on 020 8360 5159 or 020 8360 7370.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
