The London Borough of Enfield is the Admissions Body for Edmonton County School.
If your child is in year 6 you will receive a booklet from the LBE with details of how to apply for a place. The school is oversubscribed. If you have concerns about this please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher.
If you are coming to live in Enfield or wish to enquire about a place at ECS, please contact Enfield Council Schools Admissions via www.new.enfield.gov.uk or telephone 020 8379 1000
The criteria for admission are:
If there are more applications than places available, priority will be given to applicants in the following order:
1. Children in public care (looked after children)
2. Children for whom a particular school is appropriate on exceptional medical grounds. Such applications will be considered under this criterion only if they are supported by an attached written statement from a doctor. This must demonstrate that there is a very specific connection between the child’s medical need and the school requested.
3. Children with a brother or sister who will be attending the school at the time of proposed admission. The children concerned must be living at the same address.
4. Children living nearest to the school measured ‘as the crow flies’, that is, in a straight line from the child’s home to a point midway between both sites (travel by private car or public transport will not be taken into account).
When it is not possible to admit all applicants to a particular school within any criterion, priority will be given to those living closest to the school measured as in criterion 4 above.
For primary to secondary transfer, sibling priority will only be given where the older sibling will still be attending the school in the September that the younger child joins.
Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs will be offered a place at a school if it is named in their Statement in accordance with the Education Act 1996 and the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.
