Chase Side Primary School is a two-form entry primary school. Our published admission number (PAN) is 60 per year group. All admissions are processed by Enfield Council, which has determined the selection criteria. The Admissions Service is responsible for co-ordinating the allocation of Reception places in Enfield to make sure that as many children as possible get places at schools of their parents’ and carers’ preference.
Information about admissions and schools in Enfield is available on the website www.enfield.gov.uk/admissions. You will also access the online portal at this link, where you can make your application for a Reception / Nursery place.
Chase Side has a wonderful Nursery. If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018, you can apply for a Nursery place for September 2021. This will be the September before their fourth birthday. Please remember if your child attends our Nursery, you must apply for a Reception place in the same way as other applicants. There is no automatic right to transfer from Nursery to Reception. If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, you can apply for a Reception place for September 2021.
If your child is offered a place at our school, you will receive information in the Summer about your child’s induction into our Nursery or Reception classes. You will be invited to an information session where we will share vital information to ensure you are part of our school community.
The online application process for September 2021 begins on 1st September 2020 until 15th January 2021. Offers will be made for Nursery and Reception places in April 2021.
Pupils who join us after the school year has started in September will have an introductory meeting. Parents are required to visit our school with their child as part of the admissions process. All new admissions are supported to ensure they are felt welcomed and make friends easily. Our staff will monitor their transition and ensure they are well supported.
Under normal circumstances we would have a list of dates that you could visit the school but under current circumstances this is not possible.
