Rayleigh Primary School Admissions Policy is available in our 'School Policies' tab as well as the Local Authority Admissions site.
Our Admission Arrangements

If you are considering Rayleigh Primary School for your child, you would be most welcome to visit, meet  one of our Senior Management team and have a tour of the school. 

To make an appointment to visit please contact Mrs Burfoot in the school office, either by email office@rayleigh.essex.sch.uk or by phone 01268 775712

School visits in the Autumn term usually take place on Wednesdays at 9:30 & 14:00. During the Spring and Summer terms we are happy to make appointments throughout the week. 

Admissions to the school Nursery are handled through the school by Mrs Burfoot in the office; email office@rayleigh.essex.sch.uk 

Our Nursery takes children in the Academic year (Sept - Aug) that they turn four.
Places in the Nursery are allocated on the basis of having siblings in the school, Catchment area, then distance from the school (as the crow flies).

Please note that a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the school


For either entry to Reception or for a Mid Year Transfer you must apply through the  Essex County County website. Please use the link below.
