Thank you for considering Webheath Academy Primary School for your child.
We understand that this may be the first time you have to consider schooling for your child, and we are here to help.
As a primary school, you could be working with our school for seven years, so it is an important step. We would recommend parents and children visit our school to get a feel for the school and pre-school, speak with staff, see our excellent facilities and all that we have to offer your child.
Apply for Nursery
Admissions for our Nursery is for three-year-olds. Please contact the school office or Mrs Karen Smart, Nursery Manager, for current vacancies and support in applying for a place.
Apply for a Reception place
You are required to submit and online Local Authority admissions application form when starting school for the first time. Visit www.worcestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions to make your application or telephone School admissions on 01905 822700 if you need assistance.
The application deadline is by the 15th January each year.
Parents/carers will be notified by the LA on behalf of the Governing Body by letter, of the outcome of their application by or on nominated date.
In year transfers (including into Year 5)
Places within our school are limited to 60 as a two-form entry. Each year group has two classes of 30. We often receive many more applications than available places and ensure we act in a fair and equitable way; our admissions criteria are applied to all applications. The Governors and Trustees consult on the admissions criteria when any changes are made and at least every seven years. Our last consultation process was in Autumn 2022.
Our Policy has latest admissions criteria.
The school maintains a waiting list for places. If a place arises, these will be offered to those children on the waiting list. The order on the waiting list is maintained according to our admissions criteria. These waiting lists are deleted at the end of every half term so parents wishing for their child to remain on the waiting list, must let us know. We know life gets very busy, so we do try to contact those on the waiting list to check their current position.
