Admissions Arrangements
Visits from prospective parents are warmly welcomed. Please contact the school for an appointment.

Admissions to Nursery are determined by the Admissions Committee of our Governing Body.  The Committee sits early in the Summer term to decide admissions for the following September.  Mid-year admissions should be made via the School Office.

Applications for School Places for Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 outside the Normal Admissions Round

All mid year admissions for Greensted Infant School, for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, should be made directly to the School.  Please email or phone the School Office on 01268 552535.  Mid-year admissions (sometimes called in-year admissions) 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.  The number to admit for Reception, year 1 and Year 2 is 60. 

Parents wishing to apply for a place at our Nursery must complete a registration form which is available from the school office. The nursery offers either 15 hours or 30 hours, depending upon parental entitlement, and can offer 26 places per session. 

Children join our nursery in the September after they turn 3 years old.

Reception Admissions for September start
Children will join our reception classes in the September after they turn 4 years old. 
Our number to admit is 60 children.  There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admissions area. In the event of over subscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given.​

1. Looked After Children and previously looked after children (as hereinafter defined)

2. Children with a sibling attending Greensted Infant school or Greensted Junior school at the time of admission

3. Children living in the priority admission area

4. Children of Staff at the School

a) where a member of staff has been employed by the School for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made,

and/or b) the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.  

5. Remaining applications.

In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be given to looked after children and then be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.


Further information regarding admissions is available in the Determined Admissions Arrangements 2022/23 document and the Determined Admissions Arrangements 2023/24 document.  Please note the Greensted Infant School and Nursery and Greensted Junior School are planning to merge and become one school Greensted Primary School from

The Appeals Timetable for 2022/23 has also been published.
