You can apply to change your child’s school during the school year. This is called a mid-year admission. Your child is not guaranteed a place at your preferred school. You should not remove your child from their school before you have received another offer.
NB: From 1st April 2022 mid year primary school applications will no longer be handled by Essex County Council. (However, applications for children starting primary school in year R in September will continue to be dealt with by ECC Admissions Department. https://www.essex.gov.uk/apply-for-a-primary-school-place) From this date, mid year applications are to be made directly to the Canonium Learning Trust for all the schools in the group.
