For more information about the application process simply access Havering's website www.havering.gov.uk/admissions and either download the brochure 'Starting School in Havering' or collect one from School Support & Pupil Services section at Mercury House, Mercury Gardens, Romford, RM1 3SL.
Only Havering residents should complete a Havering application form. If you do not live in Havering you can still apply for a place at a Havering school but you must complete a form available from your Local Authority or apply online via their website.
Infant to Junior Transfer
Year 2 pupils are no longer automatically allocated a place at their adjoining junior school. Please read the information below carefully and ensure that you apply for a junior school place for your child by 15th January.
The law now requires you to apply for a place at the linked junior school.
The School Admissions Team have produced a booklet that will guide you through the process, you can read and download this via www.havering.gov.uk/admissions/Juniorbooklet.
Please ensure that you complete your application before the deadline of 15 January 2018. Failure to apply could mean that your child cannot transfer to the linked junior school.
The law states that first priority for school places must be given to Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children. In Havering all community (and majority of academy) junior schools give second priority to pupils transferring from the linked infant school. If you are applying for a junior academy you are advised to check the admissions criteria before applying.
If you do have any concerns or would like to discuss this further please feel free to contact the School Admissions Team via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01708 434600 between 12-5pm Monday to Friday.
