In Enfield, children begin school during the academic year in which they become five. The academic year begins in September. The place may be part-time to start with, or full-time depending on the arrangements made by the individual school concerned. If a school has a nursery, children may be admitted on a part-time basis from approximately 4 years of age, depending on whether there are vacancies.
There are three different types of primary school in Enfield:
- Community Schools – the admission arrangements are the responsibility of the Local Authority
- Voluntary Aided schools – The governors are the admission authority for these schools.
- Academies – The governors are the admission authority for these schools.
