Yardley Primary School

Enabling children to reach their full potential


Prospective Parents

If you are a prospective parent of a child who will be starting school in September 2025 we invite you to come and visit the school.


We do not do open days or evenings, instead the headteacher, Mr Evans, or another member of the leadership team, will show you around, usually in small groups no bigger than 2 or 3 sets of parents.


Currently, these tours take place on Monday and Thursday at 9.30am or 2.15pm and Wednesdays at 2.15pm. These will recommence in the autumn term, September 2024.


To arrange a visit, ring the school office on 0208 529 3671 or email


All applications are processed by Waltham Forest and more information, including the application form, can be found on their dedicated admissions website here 


We are a very popular school and are usually over-scribed. We were approached by Waltham Forest in 2022 about the feasibility of expanding from 2 form entry to 3 form entry. For the Reception intakes September 2023 and 2024 we have taken additional classes (90 spaces each year instead of 60) and so out cut off distance for applications was larger than normal. For the September 2025 intake we also anticipate that we will be 3 form entry and there will be 90 spaces available.


The cut off distance for catchment area changes on a yearly basis but for the previous three years it was as follows.


September 2022 - 0.511 of a mile

September 2021 - 0.463 of a mile

September 2020 - 0.695 of a mile
