Guide to Admissions

It is the responsibility of parents to make an application for their child’s primary school place. Therefore it is not necessary to wait to receive an application form or letter in the post. You can access information and apply online or apply using a paper form. Please follow the link provided if you require more guidance.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact our school office to arrange an appointment.

Should applications for admissions exceed the number of places available, Leigh Beck Infant and Nursery Academy apply the following criteria.

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children (as defined on page 12 of the Primary Education in Essex 2021 booklet).
  2. Children with a brother or sister attending the school or the partner Junior School.
  3. Proximity of home to school measured by straight line distance, those living closest being given the highest priority.


You can apply online for your child to start school using the link below.
