The academy's admission arrangements are detailed within the following policies, which can be accessed here:
Children will be admitted into Foundation Stage at the start of the Academic Year of their fifth birthday. The Local Authority co-ordinates the school's applications for the normal admissions round and further information can be found at Essex Schools Admissions. This means that parents need only complete one application form that is submitted to the local authority planning and admissions office. There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority catchment area.
In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria:
In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given highest priority.
Parents are welcome to visit the school by arrangement with the Headteacher when they move into the area or if they wish to see round the school prior to making a decision about their child's education.
Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception. From the 1st April 2022, all mid-year applications should be made directly to the academy, using the mid-year application form available on the website below and / or from the school office. The completed forms and proof of address should be returned to the school office, either by hand, post or email to email@example.com. It is always a good idea to to contact the school to discuss an mid-year application as well as completing the form.
For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group. If it has not been possible to offer you a place, you do have the right of appeal against non-admission.
We will inform you of the outcome of your mid-year application in writing (via email) within 15 school days.
Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.
Up until the 31st March 2022 all mid-year applications should continue to be submitted online to Essex County Council at www.essex.gov.uk/admissions who will manage the applications on the Academy’s behalf.
