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:


  1. Looked After Children
  2. Children attending the partner Infant School, Mildmay Infant & Nursery School.
  3. Children with a sibling attending the school or the partner Infant School;
  4. Children living in the priority admission area*;
  5. Remaining applications.


*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.


Information regarding the process of applying for a place can be found on the Essex Admissions pages:

Mid-Year Admissions


From April 1st 2022, Mildmay Junior School (and Bridge Academy Trust) are responsible for the receipt and processing of mid-year applications - i.e those where a child is seeking to move from one provision to another (e.g. relocation of home address).


Applications for mid-year admission should be made by downloading and using the form below and communicating directly with the school. Where there is space in a school cohort an offer will be made.

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.
