Admissions

Pupils applying for Oak View School are dealt with on a case by case basis. All pupils must have  or an EHCP, Education, Health and Care Plan (or a statement of special educational needs)

Pupils can start at Oak View at any age and at any time of the year,  there is no deadline for applications. Because most pupils start mid-year, there is no separate start of year process.

Please read the SEN application process at the Essex Local Authority site or contact us on the enquiry page (under contact us) or phone 020 8508 4293 for more details. 

Pupils at Oak View have a range of disabilities, for which the school is experienced in. An early part of the admissions process is used to discuss these disabilities.

Starting primary school for the first time

If your child is due to start primary school and already has a statement of special educational needsor an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the process of selecting a primary school is linked to your child's statement or EHCP. 

A consultation with the Statutory Assessment Service, schools and parents will take place and a school will be named in the statement or EHCP. You should not make an application for a primary school place. 
 
If your child is in the process of being considered for a statement or EHCP you should still make an application through the reception admission round process. However, please emailadmissions@essex.gov.uk to inform us your child is going through this process.

Year 6 to Year 7 transfer

If your child is in Year 6 with a statement of special educational needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the process for selecting a secondary school is linked to your child's statement or EHCP.
 
A statement review takes place during Year 6 in consultation with the Statutory Assessment Service, schools and parents. A school will then be named in the statement or EHCP. You should not make an application for a secondary school place unless you wish your child to attend a selective (grammar) school.
 
If your child is in Year 6 and has SEN Support, or is in the process of being considered for a statement or EHCP, you should still make an application (either online or by paper) through the Year 6 to Year 7 transfer process.  
 
When your child’s statement is finalised you should inform School Admissions in writing to admissions@essex.gov.uk so that your application can be withdrawn.
