Admission arrangements back to the top

Admissions to Reception

All children are admitted according to the admission policy of the London Borough of Enfield, a copy of which is available from the school office. Our current Planned Admission Number is 60. The Local Education Authority is responsible for admissions to our school and any parent whose request for a place is refused has the right to appeal to this body. For further information about the criteria used for admissions, please download the document using the “Admissions to Reception classes at Lavender” link below.

Admission to reception classes at Lavender

Children are admitted to the Reception classes during the autumn term of the school year (1st September to 31st August) in which they reach their 5th birthday.  All children start school initially on a part time basis to help them settle in successfully.  Children’s specific needs will be dealt with individually.

During the summer term prior to your child starting school in Reception, we arrange a number of opportunities for you and your child to get to know more about how our school works and the people who will be supporting your child’s learning.  We organise an information meeting for parents and carers which provides an opportunity for discussion and time to answer your questions. Your children are also invited to attend school for some play sessions to take part in activities and share a story.

During the first two weeks of the autumn term in September, staff will visit you and your child in your home which is an opportunity for you all to meet in an informal setting before admission.

For more information please click here to view the Primary admissions page on the Enfield website.

Section 324 of the Education Act 1996 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit a child with a statement of special educational needs that names their school. Schools must also admit children with an EHC (Education, Health and Care) Plan that names the school.

Equality information back to the top

The Public Sector Equality Duty 2011 has three aims under the general duty for Schools, Academies and Settings:

1. Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act by removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics.

2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not by taking steps to meet the needs of people from protected groups where these are different from the needs of other people.

3. Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not by encouraging people from protected groups to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.

Our school has considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to the eight protected equality groups: race/ disability/ gender/ gender reassignment/ age/ pregnancy and maternity/ religion or belief and sexual orientation.

In compiling this equality information we have :

  • Identified evidence already in the school of equality within policies and practice and identified gaps.
  • Examined how our school engages with the protected groups, identifying where practice could be improved.

PE and sport premium for primary schools back to the top


The Government provides additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) in primary schools.


Proposed Impact

By training staff and hiring specialist staff, children, from all groups, will receive high quality PE provision and develop skills – we have a target of 90% good or better teaching with 40% outstanding

Children will be able to access and experience a wider range of sporting activities, which will inspire and generate interest in physical activity – we aim to see an increase in the number of children taking bikeability training and an increase in those signing up for off-school site clubs (to be measured through passport scheme)

Children will be encouraged to continue to pursue sports and physical activities outside school through clubs and events – we aim to increase after school club participation by 30%

More children will be encouraged to participate in inter and intra school competitions – we aim to increase the % of teams entering tournaments and the number of children going through to finals by 50%

Values and ethos back to the top

Lavender is a special place – enjoyment and challenge are at the heart of all we do. We believe that every child is unique and we aim to nurture and inspire them in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. We are committed to giving each child the best education, creating a love of learning and a curiosity about the world around them. Our curriculum is creative and engaging, and our commitment to developing growth mindset and knowledge of how to learn ensures that our children become successful, independent and lifelong learners.

Our Vision

Lavender school has a big heart. It takes care of its community and is a warm and welcoming place of learning. The vision we have for our school is built on three key drivers; learning culture, aspiration and values.


Learning culture

We know that by the time children leave us their learning journey has only just begun and that learning takes a lifetime. At Lavender we want to inspire all children to reach beyond their horizons and equip them with the knowledge, skills and understanding to create a lifelong love of learning. 

We want all children to be engaged and excited about learning and take pride in their work. Our children will be reflective, resilient and independent with a passion and curiosity for new learning. We aim for every child to know themselves as learners, who are eager to know how to improve, and who capitalise on every opportunity to improve. We will support every child to develop a growth mindset through commitment, determination and resilience. Our learners will be confident enough to ‘have a go’ and understand that they learn from mistakes. Lavender children will collaborate by sharing their learning with each other as well as helping others to learn. 



We believe that every child is capable of great things and we aim to unlock this potential in a caring and stimulating environment. We will be ambitious for our pupils, especially those who are disadvantaged, and will not place a ceiling on children’s abilities. We want to make a difference to the lives of our children and will nurture our learners and have a relentless focus on progress.

We will provide a curriculum that is creative, ambitious and rigorous and ensure that children have everything they need to be successful beyond Lavender. Through our curriculum we aim to develop pupils physically, academically and emotionally with an eye on the future and the needs of global citizens. We  will  encourage the use of environments and expertise beyond the classroom so that learning is filled with rich first-hand purposeful experiences whilst being flexible and responsive to individual needs and interests. We will make meaningful links between areas of knowledge and the major issues of our time and ensure that our learning has local, national and international dimensions.


Our values of respect, care, honesty, responsibility, appreciation and determination will be the moral compass for our community. Our children and staff will care and respect themselves and others as members of a vibrant, diverse and inclusive community. We aim to celebrate those aspects that unite us and also those that make us unique. Our pupils will have positive attitudes towards their learning and the learning of others. Our open culture will actively promote all aspects of pupil and staff welfare to ensure our community feels safe and listened to.  We will support the well being and working conditions of our whole staff team to ensure a stable community which fosters personal and professional growth and develops leadership at all levels.
