Main School Admissions
This page is for admissions into our Reception class for September or for any child joining our school in Reception through to Year 6 during the academic year.
For information about joining our Nursery please see the Nursery admissions page.
Chadwell Primary School admits pupils according to the Admissions Policy of the London Borough of Redbridge.
Parents of children entering Reception at the start of the academic year can expect a parents’ meeting and the children will be invited in for a visit prior to admission.
Please be aware that attending our Nursery does not guarantee your child a place in our Reception, parents need to apply for a Reception place through the Local Authority at the given time.
School admissions are made via the Redbridge Council Website - https://www.redbridge.gov.uk/schools/school-admissions/
Admissions during the academic year into Reception – Year 6
In-Year applications to Reception – Year 6 must be made via the Local Authority. Applications will be considered in accordance with the criteria that apply to all Primary admissions. All applicants will be placed on a waiting list.
Once your child has been allocated a place to Chadwell Primary School and you have accepted the place the Headteacher will allocate your child a class and inform you of a start date.

Appeals against Admissions Decisions
The Education Act 1996 allows parents to appeal against any decision made by or on behalf of Redbridge Education Authority about the school at which education is to be provided for a child.
Every effort will be made to meet parental preferences and no appeal, to an appeal committee, may be lodged before the Authority has made a firm decision. Parents will, where the decision is not in accordance with their preferences be informed of the date by which they must lodge their appeal.
The Authority will implement the decisions of the appeals committees. Places will continue to be filled from the waiting lists, whether or not parents have appealed, in accordance with the admissions policy.
Admission of Pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEND)
Chadwell Primary School is an inclusive school, when children are admitted into our school we will meet with the parents/carers to ensure that we are as informed as fully as possible about any special educational needs.
We also request that the child’s academic records from their previous school, if they have attended one, be provided. Provision for children with special educational needs is made in accordance with our Special Educational needs policy.
