Reception Intake 2021 - Frequently Asked Questions

When will I know my child has a Reception place in September 2021 at St George’s School?

Essex County Council will contact you directly about your child’s online school application on 16th April 2021.  This will inform you of the school at which your child has been offered a place.

If you do NOT receive an email/letter by 23rd April 2021 you should contact the LA School Admissions Team on 0345 603 2200.

Once you have received confirmation from Essex County Council of your child’s place with us on the 16th April, we will send you an email asking you to complete an on-line form to confirm your acceptance of the place and ask you to provide some initial information.

We will provide you with further information about possible Tours/Induction Days whether virtual or in person as soon as available.

We will send you an email with an electronic admission form to complete and we will provide you with general information about the school, term dates and where to buy uniform.
