Chipping Ongar Primary School


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

We are a Primary School catering for children aged 4-11.


All children who will be five in the period between 1st September and 31st August can start full time in September, however it is still the case that legally children do not have to start school until the start of the term following their fifth birthday.  


Our school has an admissions figure of 30 children and our admissions policy outlines in more detail the admission procedure, catchment area and criteria applied to admissions. We are an inclusive school and do not discriminate in any way.


We welcome parents to visit the school and talk to us about their children and we will hold meetings and opportunities for children to visit the school prior to starting school.


There will be a period of induction during the Autumn Term, in order to settle all reception children into school. Parents are invited to bring their child into the classroom each day to help them feel at ease with their teacher and new environment.


Children transferring from another school are admitted according to the Admission Policy provided that there is space in the appropriate year group.

Applications for School Places Outside the Normal Admissions Round (Mid-year Admissions)

From 1 April 2022 any mid-year applications must be made directly to the school.  If there are any spaces in the year group an offer will be made.


All mid-year applications should be made directly to the school, using the mid-year application form available below, or via the school office.


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 (primary and infant schools)/Year 3 (Junior Schools).


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.

Please see our Policy page for our current Admissions Policy.
