Admissions September 2023

For children due to start school in September 2023, the closing date for applications was 15th January 2023.

Applications received after the closing date are treated as late applications. This means there will be far less chance of your child being offered a place at the school you want.

Take the time to read Thurrock’s primary admissions brochure and then follow the instructions for applying.

Our school is currently over-subscribed, meaning that more people apply for a space than the number of spaces we can offer. Our admission number is 30 in each year group.

We believe the early stages of a child’s life to be most important in laying foundations for future learning. We have long recognised the disadvantage to Spring and Summer born pupils regarding the length of time spent in Key Stage 1.

All reception class pupils start school in September and are offered a full time place which they are gradually introduced to.

Admission Policy and Process

All parents who wish their children to attend our school must apply to Thurrock Council’s Admissions Department early in the year (a date is published) preceding the Academic Year that the child is due to be admitted into school. The Local Authority encourage applications to be made on the Thurrock Council Website:

Admissions during an academic year are called In-year admissions.  Applications forms and further details about in-year admission should be made directly to the local authority here:

Admissions to our school are in line with Thurrock Admission arrangements as set out in our admissions policy.


We commission the local authority to run our appeals service.  Please follow the link below for further information on the process.
