There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area. In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given-
1. Looked After Children and previously looked after children
2. children with a sibling attending the school
3. children living in the priority admission area
4. remaining applications
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 the highest priority. Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above (other than Looked After Children and previously looked after children).
Agreement for children living in the priority admission area
The LA may offer places above the published admission number (during and after the normal time of admission) in the following exceptional circumstances-
for infant classes at the class size limit: if the next nearest school with a space is not within a reasonable distance of the home address; or
for junior classes or where the admission would not breach the infant class size limit: if the journey to the next nearest school with a space is not reasonable in terms of distance, accessibility or cost.
Parents and carers who live in Essex can now apply for their child's school place online using the Essex Online Admissions Service: www.essex.gov.uk/admissions
