Primary School Admissions 2015/16

Admissions to reception year at an Infants or Primary School are coordinated by the School Admissions Team, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council. Admissions during 2014 are called In-year admissions. Applications forms and further details about in-year admission should be made by selecting 'in-year admissions' on this web site.

Parents can apply between 15th September 2014 and 15th January 2015 to start school in September 2015. School places are not offered on a 'first come first served' basis, but are considered in line with the admission criteria for each school.

If you have applied you will be informed on 16th April 2015 via email or first class post (depending on whether the application was made online or on paper) of the school place being offered to your child.

The full admission criteria and further details can be found using the links below. The admissions booklets and application forms are also available in paper copy from local libraries, the Civic Centre and can be downloaded below.

If you have a child born between 1st September 2010 and 31st August 2011, he or she is due to start school in September 2015.
Applications for this year group can be submitted online or in hardcopy anytime between 15th September 2014 and 15th January 2015.
