Admissions arrangements



There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area (Maltings Lane Development).  In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:

  1. Looked After Children (as defined below);
  2. children with a sibling attending the school;
  3. children living in the school’s 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 highest priority.    

*A map showing the school’s priority admission area and the Witham priority admission area is available from School Planning and Admissions, Essex County Council.

Applications for a school place should be made through Essex County Council. Details are available through the following link: https://www.essex.gov.uk/Education-Schools/Schools/Admissions/Pages/Admissions.aspx

Agreement for children living in the priority admission area

The LA may offer places above the published admission number in the following exceptional circumstances:

  1. for infant classes at the class size limit: if, outside the normal admission round, the next nearest school with a space is not within a reasonable distance of the home address; or
  2. 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.
