If your child is currently in Year 2 of an infant school please refer to the information below about securing your child’s Year 3 school place for September 2018.
Most junior schools in Essex now guarantee a place for children attending the partner infant school, provided that an application is made for the partner junior school before the closing date of 15 January 2018. Information will be available via your child’s current school to explain how you apply i.e. register your child for a place.
However, if your child attends one of the schools listed below, you will need to complete a Year 2-3 application form to secure your child’s Year 3 school place. An application form is available to apply before the closing date of 15 January 2018.
Chigwell Row Infant School
Hilltop Infant School, Wickford
St Anne Line Infant School
St Helen’s Catholic Infant School, Brentwood
The Wickford Church of England School
If you want your child to attend a school that is not the partner junior school or you want to apply for a Year 3 place at a primary school, you will need to complete an application form (available from 13 November 2017). The closing date for receipt of applications is 15 January 2018. Applications for Year 2 to Year 3 transfers cannot be made online.
If you live in the Essex County Council area but your child is in Year 2 at an infant school outside of Essex, then contact the school's local authority or speak with your child’s current school to establish what you need to do to apply for a junior school/Year 3 place.
