As you may be aware, the statutory closing date for applications from parents of Year 6 children (for a secondary school place in Year 7 from September 2020) is 31st October 2019.

I would be most grateful if you could place an item in your school newsletter or Parent-Mail this week, reminding parents of Year 6 children who have yet to submit an application, that they must do so by 31st October 2019.

Applications can be made via our website www.essex.gov.uk/admissions .
