Come and Meet us!
At Willowbrook we endeavour to be fully inclusive. We value all our pupils and we celebrate everyone’s achievements and successes. We welcome pupils from different cultural and religious backgrounds. We believe that everyone is special and we strive to ensure that every member of our school community reaches their full potential. No pupil is ever refused admission on grounds of their background or academic ability. We however do have a strict admission criteria.
Willowbrook is a one form entry.
Our intake is 30 children in Foundation and Years 1-6.
Admissions are handled by Essex County Council and you can apply for your child's place by visiting the Admissions website https://www.essex.gov.uk/topic/admissions
Places are allocated to Willowbrook Primary School by ECC, up to the PAN, for each Year Group. There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority catchment area. In the event of oversubscription, places are allocated using the following criteria, in the order given:
In order of priority:
1. Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children (as defined on page 18 of the Essex Primary School Admissions booklet – link below) https://assets.ctfassets.net/knkzaf64jx5x/563jtLabKmmTA0235Qwl2I/27a43b08817d92ceb313df9fd936df80/Primary-Schools-Brochure-2023-to-2024.pdf
2. Children with a sibling attending the school; (sibling is defined in the Essex Primary School Admissions booklet page 17).
3. Children, whose home address is in the priority admission area – a postcode checker is available via this link. https://secureweb1.essex.gov.uk/CAS/Priority-Admissions-(Catchment)-Area.aspx (as defined on page 15 and 16 of the Essex Primary School Admissions booklet).
4. Remaining applications.
In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.
Straight line distance* of the home address is used to differentiate between applications in all criteria and is calculated in accordance with the Essex Primary Schools Admissions booklet available to view on the website www.essex.gov.uk/admissions.
If you would like your child to attend our school, we strongly recommend that you visit the school for a tour and informal chat with the Headteacher or Deputy Head. We look forward to welcoming you and working with you.
