On 1st July 2014 Tudor Court Primary became an ‘Academy’ School. The Governors decided at this time not to change the School Admission Policy or Procedure. Thurrock Local Authority will continue to process applications on our behalf through their Admissions Department. Our School has continued to commission our appeal process through the Local Authority for the foreseeable future.
Admission to Nursery
Unlike the allocation of school places through Thurrock Council, the allocation of Nursery places are the sole responsibility of the School.
A Registration Form is available from the School Office or below. Children are admitted annually in the September following their 3rd birthday. Places are allocated with priority to catchment children based on the distance from school to home. Children attend five sessions Monday to Friday either mornings or afternoons and these 15 hours are government funded. Parents should make a separate application to Thurrock Council for school places. The children remain in our Nursery until July each year, prior to them starting full time education.
Admission to Tudor Court Primary School
Applications for admission to Tudor Court should be made through Thurrock Council Education Department, who can be contacted on 01375 652883. Applications can also be submitted on-line via www.thurrock.gov.uk/admissions
Please contact Thurrock Council for details of our latest Admissions Policy and guidelines.
Upon receipt of an offer for a place in our Reception classes from Thurrock Council, we arrange tours of school, a welcome meeting and induction sessions, please refer to Foundation Stage for further information.
For all other year groups, an induction tour with the Head Teacher or member of the Senior Leadership Team is arranged prior to your child joining us. Further information can be obtained from the School Office.
Appeals for our School are arranged by Thurrock Council. If you are refused admission you can make an appeal request – information about the appeal procedure is available from the School Admissions Team as per the above contact information.
Admission to Secondary Schools
At the start of your child’s final year with us (Year 6), Thurrock Council issue information about how to apply for secondary schools. As soon as this is received in school, we will pass this to you. Schools hold Open Evenings, where you are invited to attend and view their facilities. Applications must be submitted by October half term. We would advise you to list as many schools as possible on your application. Once places are confirmed to parents (usually March) we will start to liaise with the secondary schools to ensure a smooth transition for all of the children.
