Admissions Policy

The Schools Planning and Admissions Department at Essex County Council allocate all intake of children wishing to join Writtle Junior School. In the first instance you will need to contact 0845 603 2200 to request a common application form.

If you would like to come and have a look around Writtle Junior School and meet Mr N Taylor, Headteacher, please contact 01245 420592 to arrange an appointment.

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area.  In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:

  1. Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children (as defined in the Primary Education in Essex 2019/2020 booklet);
  2. Children with a sibling attending the school or Writtle Infant School;
  3. Children living in the priority admission area:
  4. Remaining applications.

In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.

Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above (other than Looked After Children).
