Glebe Primary School


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.


General admissions information

The Local Authority co-ordinates the school's applications for the normal admissions round and further information can be found at Essex Schools Admissions

Applying for a mid-year place at our school from 1st April 2022

All mid-year applications should be made directly to the school, using the mid-year application form available on our website and the school office. Once completed, can you please email the form to Mrs Wyer at Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception.


For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group.


Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.


When applications exceed the number of places we have available, and after the admission of pupils with Education Health Care Plans (EHCPs) where Glebe Primary School is named in the EHCP, the following criteria will be applied in ranked order:


1  Looked After Children and previously looked after children.

2  Children living in the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school

3  Other children living in the priority admission area

4  Children living outside the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school

5  Children of teaching and non-teaching staff who have been:

  • employed at the school for two or more years at the time of application for the school place; or

  • recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage

6  Remaining applications.


In the event of over subscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to the 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 and previously looked after children).
