We aim to admit everyone who wants a place at our school, but there are times when demand exceeds space. As we are a Local Authority maintained school our admissions policy is outlined by our Local Authority, Gloucestershire County Council. Therefore, admissions for all children starting school for the first time are handled by the Gloucestershire County Council.
Admissions for Reception
Parents and carers should complete their preference form and return it to The Local Authority (Gloucestershire County Council) by the deadline date each January. You will then find out the outcome of this application in April. More information can be found below.
If available places are over-subscribed the following criteria are used by the Local Authority to decide who will be offered a place at our school:
Children in care
Siblings in school already
Distance from school.
Parents have the right to appeal to the Local Authority in the event their child is not offered a place at Willersey Primary School. The Local Authority's Admission Scheme, which includes details of the application process together with a timetable for applications, can be found below.
All Other Admissions
We welcome children joining the school at any other time. These admissions are called "in-year admissions" and the process for this is directly with the school, rather than through the Local Authority.
You and your children are welcome to visit the school by appointment. During your visit the Head teacher will show you around the school and answer any of your questions. Appointments can be made with our school Administrator, Mrs Christina Freeman. You will then be required to formally apply using the In-Year Application Form, which you can download here.
