How to Apply for a Place at Roach Vale Primary School


We consider applications for each relevant age group via the Local Authority. They will apply for school places on your behalf. You must use the following link to apply for a place at Roach Vale Primary School:




Parents can also call the following number:  0845 603 2200

or email:  admissions@essex.gov.uk


You should complete and submit this form online. If you have more than one child, you will need to complete a separate online form for each child. Once you have sent in the form, School Admissions will contact us, and we will then write to you by letter (normally within 15 days) to confirm the outcome of your application. If a place is available, one will be offered.


Changing Schools

Changing schools is a serious step to take, so before applying please discuss the reasons for your request with Mrs Sampson (Headteacher). If you want to transfer from one local school to another, you should not remove your child from Roach Vale Primary School before securing a place at another school.


How many pupils do we take in each year group?

The Published Admission Number (PAN) is the maximum number of pupils that the admission authority will admit to each year group. Our school published number to admit (PAN) is 30 pupils per year group. This number has been agreed with the Local Authority. This means that our school will take a maximum of 210 pupils.
