Prospective Parents

At Jotmans Hall Primary School, we recognise the importance of choosing the right school for your child.  We hope that our website gives you an idea of the facilities and opportunities our school has to offer but we believe that coming to see the school and talking to our staff is enormously beneficial.  If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact our school office to arrange an appointment.

Essex parents must apply for primary school places by completing the Common Application Form.  This can either be completed online at, or you can use a paper application form.  Please do not do both.  It is the responsibility of parents to make an application for their child's first school place.  It is not necessary to wait to receive an application form or a letter before you apply.

  Information booklets, application forms and admissions policies are available to download from Essex County Council’s website  

Mid-Year Applications 

All mid-year applications should be made directly to the academy, using the mid-year application form available on our website (see below) and/or 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.  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.
