Admissions Policy 2024-2025


How to apply

If you would like to apply for a place at our academy (Reception or Year 3), please do so via our Local Authority, Essex County Council.


Transferring to our academy

If you would like to join our academy, please complete the ATT In-Year Admissions form which can be found as an appendix to our Admissions Policy.


If our academy is oversubscribed

We give priority to children living within the local community of the academy.  However, if there are more applications than there are places at our academy, we will give preference to children according to the following rule:

  1. Looked after Children (current and previously)
  2. Children living permanently at the same address as a child attending the academy at the time of their admission
  3. Children living closest to the academy based on straight line distance.

All children with statements of special educational needs or an education health and care plan (where the academy is named on the statement) will be admitted before we apply these three rules.

We keep a waiting list for each year group which is used to fill any vacancies.  This is ordered based on the above criteria and not on the date your child is added to it.

The waiting list is cleared at the end of each academic year.  If you would like your child to remain on the list after these dates, please contact the school office on 01255 424328.
