Admissions priority Reception to Year 6

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area.  In the event of over subscription 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 leaflet);
  2. Children with a sibling living at the same address who will be attending the school at the time of the child's admission;
  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.

Consultation on admission to the school from September 2024

We are consulting on changes to our admissions policy, which would come into effect for applications to our school for entry from September 2024.

The changes we are consulting on are:

Changing the priority order for over-subscription to include children in year 2 of John Ray Infants as priority 2, and siblings of children attending John Ray Infants or John Ray Juniors, as priority 3.

You can view the proposed policy which is below.

Please send any comments or feedback by midday on 8th December to Contact@compassps.uk or call the school directly on 01376 324107
