Primary School Admissions

If you have a child born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, they are due to start school in September 2021

It is the responsibility of parents to apply for a school place at the correct times. You will not receive any letters from Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to inform you that you must apply for your child’s school place however, early years settings and general marketing is in place to ensure parents are alerted.

Admissions during the school year are called In-year admissions. Application forms and further details about in-year admission should be made by selecting 'in-year admissions' on this web site.
