AS schools across Essex start their autumn term, parents of Year 6 pupils are being reminded that it will soon be time to apply for their child’s September 2020 secondary school place.
From 12 September 2019 parents and carers can apply online for their child’s Year 7 secondary school place. Applications must be made by the national closing date of 31 October 2019.
Applications can be made at www.essex.gov.uk/admissions with the website also holding information on different schools and their admissions criteria.
The 31 October deadline for applications is a national deadline and applications made after this are considered once all on-time applications have been determined. Applying late could reduce the chance of a child being offered a place at their preferred school.
Parents are encouraged to visit their preferred school, carefully consider each school’s admissions criteria, consider how their child will get to and from school, and use all six preferences on their application.
