As St Edmundsbury CEVA Primary School is an Aided Church of England School, the admission of children is the responsibility of the Governing Body.  The published admission number for the school is 45 pupils in each year group.


We warmly invite all prospective applicants to visit the school, at a time convenient to you, to see us in action as a vibrant, learning environment.  We do not hold an Open Day for prospective Early Years children so please contact the school office to book an individual appointment for the Headteacher to show you and your child around for all year groups.
