Admission Process

Essex County Council is responsible for handling all applications for admission to our school. 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; 

2. Children with a sibling attending the school; 

3. Children living in the priority admission area; 

4. 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 school, those living closest being given the highest priority. Pupils who cannot be admitted to Kendall CE Primary School will be offered admission to the nearest available school, taking account of parental preference and the admission criteria for those schools.

Admission to Kendall School is administered centrally and impartially by the Planning & Admissions Section of Essex County Council.  Applications for places in the Reception class for the beginning of the new academic year are now usually made on-line. The next round of applications will open in November 2021. 

Applications for admission other than to the Reception class at the beginning of the academic year should be made on the Mid-Year Admission Form which is available through Essex County Council’s website
