Mid Year Admissions

Essex County Council have informed all academies that with effect from 1 April 2022 the process for managing in-year admissions will change and they will no longer be co-ordinatoing in-year admissions for academies. This change is due to the reduction in capacity at the local authority, resulting in them no longer being able to facilitate the in-year admissions for schools, other than for LA maintained provision.  This is reflected in ECC's co-ordinated admissions scheme available on their website.  ECC will continue to co-ordinate the Reception and Y7 applications for all schools and academies.  The changes that ECC are bringing into effect aligns the process already undertaken in secondary schools across the area, whereby all secondary academies manage their own in-year admissions.
