Choosing a school for your child is such an important decision. We aim to make the admission process at Brookfield as simple as possible.

Please come to one of our weekly tours, led by our head teacher, Laurel Robin – you can book these by completing the form below.

Safeguarding

At Brookfield we prioritise children’s safety. Please read our latest Safeguarding Policy and COVID-19 update.


Our current admissions policy is as follows:

1. Reception places will be offered to children on a full-time basis. All applications for Reception places are made directly to the local authority. Applications should be made online at www.camden.gov.uk/education.

2. Applications for older children should be made directly to the school if you live in Camden. If you live outside of Camden, applications should be made to your local authority naming Brookfield as your school of choice.

3. There is a separate process for children with Education Health and Care Plans. Please contact your local authority’s Special Educational Needs Team for further details. For Camden residents, further information is available here.

4. Listed below are the criteria, in priority order, used to determine your application for community schools.

a) Looked After Children (children in public care) and adopted children who were previously looked after

b) Children with a brother or sister at the school
(Please note that this criteria does not apply if an older child has left the school prior to the younger child’s start date)

c) Social/Medical Children who the local authority accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at the school. There will have to be a clear link between the child’s exceptional need and the school in question. Parents and carers will need to submit a case supported by appropriate professional evidence to a panel convened by the local authority

d) Distance
If necessary, priority within group (a) or (b) will be decided by the distance criterion (d).

5. Applications for Nursery are made using the form above. Please note that a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception.
