 How to Apply


Parents or carers considering applying for a place in our school for the next academic year should contact the school office to make an appointment to view the school.  We prefer to limit the numbers for each visit to approximately 5 couples.  Viewings will take place at 9:30 a.m.  Please contact the school office for details.


September Admissions to Reception Class

If you wish your child to join our Reception class in September then a common application (online or paper form) must be submitted to the Local Authority.  Forms will be available from your Local Authority during the month of November the year before your child is due to start school.

There are a number of criteria for admission to our Reception class and these can be found on the Essex County Council website or on this website.

A Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must also be submitted to the school and can be downloaded from the Essex County Council website, from this website or can be obtained from the school office.

All children start in our Reception class in September; we do not have a staggered intake.
