Mid Year Admissions

In Year (Mid Year) Admissions


Essex Local Authority have decided that as from 1st April 2022 they are no longer going to be offering the service of running the in-year admission process for academies in Essex.  This means that:


  • All parents wishing for their child to join the school outside of the normal admission round, must apply to the school direct.

  • The school and the LGB will have to consider each application and decide whether to offer a place, and respond to the parent.

  • Each application needs to be dealt with within 10 school days, 15 school days at the maximum.

  • If your application is unsuccessful you have the right to an independent appeal panel for a place at any school for which you applied and have been refused a place. Please visit and follow the link 'After your school offer' for more information about this.

  • In reception, year 1 and year 2 classes are limited to 30 children. You should note that if you are appealing an infant size class limit, your chance of a successful appeal is limited.


If you wish to apply for a place at Heybridge Primary School for your child, you must complete an application form.  Applications can be downloaded here or are available on request from the school office on 01621 854082.


If your application is unsuccessful and you wish to be added to a waiting list, you must complete the 'Waiting list request' form, which can be downloaded here, or again, is available via the school office.  You will not be added to a waiting list without having previously applied to the school for a place.
