We have seven single year group classes; three in Key Stage 1 and four in Key Stage 2. We admit children from the year in which they reach the age of 5. All children are admitted full time in the Autumn Term (September).
Obtaining a Place at Little Waltham Primary School
Little Waltham Primary School operates an Admissions Policy for all pupils who will be starting school in the Reception year. Please read the following documents for further information:
School Admissions Consultation for Entry in September 2022
On behalf of the Governing Body of Little Waltham CEVA Primary School, views are sought on the proposed admission arrangements for September 2022 entry.
The six week consultation period will last from Friday 9 October 2020 to Friday 27 November 2020 (allowing for half term). All responses will be collated and passed to the Governing Body for formal discussion and approval after the end of the consultation process. The final determined policy will be published on the school website by Monday 4 January 2021.
You can view a copy of the proposed admission arrangements below:
Situation 1 : Within the Catchment Area
All pupils who are resident within the original Ecclesiastical Parish of Little Waltham are considered for a place at the school as a matter of priority but are not guaranteed admission automatically.
Situation 2 : Outside the Catchment Area
Applications from outside the catchment area are welcome providing pupils meet the conditions of the Admissions Policy and there are places available.
Registering your Child with the School
When your child is due to start school, you can apply for a place online using the Essex Online Admissions Service, at essex.gov.uk/topic/admissions. The Education Authority will notify the school of all those who have applied for a place. These applications will then be ranked in line with the school Admissions Policy.
Appointments to Visit the School
The Headteacher, or in her absence a senior member of staff, will always be happy to show you around the school and answer all your questions. We value this opportunity to meet prospective new families. We look forward to seeing you!
The Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Ash Class teacher hold an Induction Afternoon at the school towards the end of each Summer Term. All ‘new parents’ for the following academic year are invited to attend. The purpose of the afternoon is to explain various procedures, requirements and expectations. We also talk about the areas of learning covered in the Foundation Stage Curriculum. It is also an opportunity for you to meet a member of the Friends Committee and find out ways in which you could help.
