We hope that our website provides you with a wealth of information about our wonderful school. However, if you would like to find out more, we enjoy welcoming visitors!

All mid-year applications should be made directly to Debden C of E Primary Academy, using the mid-year application form below.  Completed applications should be emailed to  Alternatively, a paper copy is available from the school office if required.

Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to any year group, apart from admissions to Reception each September.   

For mid-year 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 Published Admission Number (PAN) for our school is 23 children in a year group.

Applications should be submitted no sooner than half a term before the planned start date.  We will endeavour to reply to your application within no more than three school days.  Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.

Where a place is not available to your child, you may submit a waiting list application to be added to the waiting list which is held in accordance with the school's admission criteria which can be found in the Admissions Policy below.

Appeals are co-ordinated via Essex County Council and further information can be found at Essex Appeals.
