Primary school applications for children due to start school in September 2024 are to be made online (for children who were born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020) (www.essex.gov.uk/admissions) between 6th November 2023 and the closing date of 15th January 2024.
Each Trust school will be holding open events for parents / carers of children that are due to start school in September. Further details can be found on their websites. Links can be found on the 'Our schools' page.
