For pupils wishing to transfer during the academic year, complete a primary mid-year application form.

For pupils wishing to transfer from infant school in September, the information is available from the Essex County Council website from the beginning of November the previous year, and applications must be received by mid January of the admission year. There are just over 30 spaces available to admit Y3 pupils.

Arrangements for Reception

Parents of new entrants are invited to a meeting in the autumn term before their child’s admission to find out about our school and are invited to have a tour of the school during a working day. Additional meetings for parents are held during the summer term as well as induction sessions for children, to prepare for their start in September.

Arrangements for children transferring from infant school

Now we are a primary school, children simply move from Reception through the year groups until year 6 but there are approximately 36 additional spaces available for pupils from other schools to join us in year 3.

Arrangements for children with Special Needs

Extra transition visits and ‘buddies’ are arranged for pupils with additional needs during the term prior to their transfer. Parents of children with specific needs are invited to a meeting well in advance of their child transferring to ensure appropriate support is fully in place. For children with Statements or EHC plans, the junior SENCo will attend the final review at infants to ensure that adequate transitional visits and additional support is fully in place before moving up to juniors.
