Admission arrangements

We are the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools in Essex. This means we set the admission arrangements for these schools.

The admission arrangements sets out how schools admit pupils and includes:

  • the published admission number
  • the oversubscription criteria
  • information on waiting lists

The determined admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled infant, junior and primary schools in Essex for 2020 to 2021 are available.
