Admissions Criteria for Mildmay Junior School
The published number of pupils to admit at Mildmay Junior School is 90 pupils per cohort. There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area.
In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given, providing that an application is received by the published closing date:
*As defined by local authority Admissions
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.
Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above (other than Looked after Children).
For applications received after the start of Year 3, Looked After Children will be given priority ahead of all other applicants.

Appealing a school application decision
Parents have the right of appeal for a place at a school that they had put as a preference and for which they had not been allocated a place, even where that preference was of a lower rank than a place offered.
The appeal would be against the admission authority (in this case Mildmay Junior School). The Local Authority will provide the admission authority at that time with details of the preference expressed by parents
How do I appeal?
Following receipt of the decision regarding your child’s school place, complete the online appeal form at:
and submit it directly to the Essex Local Authority Admissions Team. In this document the word ‘appellant’ is used. That is usually the person having parental responsibility for the child and, therefore, making the appeal for a place at the school.
