Children are admitted to school in the September after their fourth birthday. At Waterman, all children are admitted full time at the beginning of the Autumn Term in the year in which they turn five.
All the admissions are handled by Essex Local Authority. A common admission form needs to be completed and should automatically be sent to all children nearing school age. The form can be accessed online at www.essex.gov.uk. Applications can be made from the 13th Nov 2017 until mid Jan 2018, do not leave until the last minute as the deadine is tight.
There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admissions area. In the event of over-subscription, places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:
1. Looked After Children
2. Children with a sibling currently attending the school
3. Pre-school/nursery children who are eligible for the Early Years pupil premium
4. Other children eligible for pupil premium
5. Other children living in the priority admissions area
6. Remaining applications
In the event of over-subscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be given to looked after children and then be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living nearest being given the highest priority. Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above.
Published Admission Number is currently: 15
