Welcome to Northside Primary School


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

Early Years Admission


Northside Primary School admits children into both the Two Year Old and Three Year Old Nursery the term after their second or third birthday. Parents apply through the school. Completing and returning forms to the school office. If you receive a place, you will be provided with more information usually a term before your child is due to start in the nursery.


Parents apply to the London Borough of Barnet for a place in Reception and are offered a place by the borough according to its guidelines, see link below. There is no guarantee that our Nursery children are offered a place in the Reception class.


Order of priority for Nursery and Reception:

  • An Education, Health Care Plan (EHCP) for special educational needs that names the school as a placement
  • Siblings attending the school
  • Children of Northside Staff (Nursery Only)
  • Proximity of house to the school (within the designated area)


We have 30 places in each year group from Reception to Year 6, 12 places in our 2 Year Old Nursery and 26 places in our Morning and Afternoon 3 Year Old Nursery (52 places in all). On very rare occasions and only for special circumstances e.g. Looked After Children, children with EHCPs we will occasionally go over numbers in classes. Our oversubscription criteria for Reception to Year 6 is managed by the London Borough of Barnet.
