Admission Arrangements
 

General Information

St. Helenís Catholic Junior School Academy is situated in the Diocese of Brentwood.

The Governing Body of the school is responsible for determining and administering the policy relating to the admission of pupils to the school. It is guided in that responsibility by the requirements of the law, by the advice of the Diocesan Trustees, and its duty to the school and the Catholic community.

The admission number for 2017/2018 into year 3 is 92.

The admission arrangements are administered by the Essex County Council. Parents wishing to apply for a place in the school for their child in the school year 2017/2018 must complete a Supplementary Information Form and return the same to the school by 16th December 2016 for admission for the following September. It should be carefully noted that all applications must be submitted on that form and all applications will be considered at the same time.
An Essex County Council application must also be completed.  This form will be available on the council website from 14th November 2016.

Policy

Applications for admission will be considered from parents who want a Catholic Education for their child according to the following criteria:
 

  1. Looked after children in Catholic families.
     
  2. Catholics attending St. Helenís Infant School, whose application is supported by the Parish Priest.
     
  3. Catholics whose permanent residence is in the parishes of Brentwood and Warley, Ingatestone or Ongar, whose application is supported by their Parish Priest.
     
  4. Catholics from other parishes who cannot attend another Catholic school nearer their home, whose application is supported by their Parish Priest.
     
  5. Other looked after children.
     
  6. Children who do not fall into the above categories.
     

Additional Notes

  • Those who have a brother or sister in the school at the time of admission will have preference in the category in which they fall;
     
  • Where there are medical grounds supported by a doctor's certificate, children will have preference in the categories in which they fall;
