Holland Park School Admissions

Pupils will be admitted to Reception classes at the beginning of the academic year (September) in which their fifth birthday falls. The intended number of admissions for this academic year is 60. All applications must be made directly to Essex County Council.

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. A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after, but immediately after being looked after, became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order, will be given first priority in oversubscription criteria ahead of all other applicants in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2014.
  2. Children who have siblings i.e. brothers or sisters who attend the school in any year group, excluding the final year;
  3.  Children who, at the time of consideration, can prove that they reside in the priority admission area of the school (a map is available at school);
  4. Remaining applications

Additional notes:

  • Children that attend The Chase Nursery at Holland Park will not receive a priority application and all applications will be processed using the criteria listed above.
  • In each individual oversubscription criterion, priority will be given to a looked after child.
  • Holland Park Primary will agree any changes to its admissions’ arrangements with the Secretary of State for Education. It will establish procedures for appeals against non-admission which will include an independent element. Details of admission arrangements will be published each year.
