Starting School – September 2022

Applications for Primary School places for September 2022 can be made online at Essex County Council from 8 November 2021.

We are looking forward to welcoming parents and children to our Open School sessions which are taking place on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 2nd November
  • Monday 8th November
  • Monday 15th November
  • Wednesday 17th November

During each Open School session, Mr Godwin, our Acting Deputy Headteacher will welcome you and give a brief talk about the school. Following this, you will be able to spend time in our Reception Unit where you can meet the class teachers and look around the classrooms and outside spaces.

The sessions will start at 3:40pm, 4:10pm and 4:40pm; to book your place, please contact the school office on 01206 574819.

We do hope that you will be able to join us at one of these events, we do however understand that these sessions may not be convenient for everyone. If you are not able to attend on one of the above dates, or if would prefer to meet Mr Godwin individually to view the school, please contact the office so that we can make alternative arrangements.

Similarly, if you have any questions about the admissions process, we are here to help. 

Applications for a place for a Reception place for September 2022 must be made online at www.essex.gov.uk/admissions by 15 January 2022.
