In Year Admissions

If you would like to apply for a place at Alma Primary School (From Reception to Year 6) you will need to complete an application form at Enfield Admissions Service (see address below).   This form can only be completed by parents / carers who live in the London Borough of Enfield. If you live outside the London Borough of Enfield, you must contact your own local authority to ask for the relevant application form.  When attending Enfield Admission service you should take with you documentation to confirm the child's date of birth and address.

Applying for a Nursery Place

Children normally attend nursery class for a year before starting in reception class.  Nursery classes in Enfield are part time and are open during term time only. Children in nursery classes attend either five mornings or five afternoons a week.  It is important to note that children who attend a nursery class attached to a school are not guaranteed a place in the reception classes of the same school. All parents have to re-apply for admission for the following year. This is to ensure that parents who do not to send their children to nursery will not be disadvantaged when applying for a school place.  Alma Primary is now able to take children from the age of Two.  Please see information below for 'Terrific Twos'.
