Reception admissions for academic year starting in September 2023

Dear Parents/Carers

As you may be aware, the primary school (Reception) admission round opened on Monday 7 November 2022, for parents of children to apply for a Reception school place for the academic year that starts in September 2023.

The statutory national closing date for applications is 15 January 2023.

From 7 November 2022, applications can be made online via 99% of parents in Essex applied online last year.


All of the application information is available on the website above.



The website also has a copy of the Primary Education in Essex 2023-24 booklet and the Schools Admissions Policies Directories contain details of all admission policies.



We hope that our website provides lots of information about our school but please do contact us and arrange a tour to see us in action! 


We are a rapidly growing and popular school but do currently have spaces in several year groups.  Please contact the School Office who will be able to advise further. 


If you would like to apply for your child to attend our school, then please click the 'Essex Admissions Link' below.

Mid-Year Admissions


Applications for school places outside the normal admissions round.

All mid-year applications should be made directly to Radwinter CofE VA Primary School, using the mid-year application form 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.

Please submit your application to
