Admission Information

Please find below a copy of our admissions arrangements, explaining how we consider applications.

This includes information on:

  • The arrangements we have in place for selecting the pupils who apply.
  • Our oversubscription criteria, for when there are more applicants than places.
  • The guidelines parents need to follow when applying for their child to attend our school.

Visits to the school

We welcome visits to school from prospective parents. Open sessions are organised for visitors to have a tour of the school by a member of the Senior Leadership Team, frequently the Headteacher, and this will provide the opportunities for parents and carers to ask their questions while in a small group. The open sessions are carefully planned to fit around school events and busy times. They run from the beginning of September until the end of November, then again at the beginning of January before the application deadline. Parents/carers should ring the school office to book onto a tour.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be able to arrange visits to school. Please contact the school office for information. We will be sending out introductory videos to prospective parents to provide information about life at Whittle-le-Woods CE Primary School.

Little Whittle our Pre-School

Our pre-school opened in January 2020 and takes children from 3 years old. We aim to prepare pupils for primary school through a child centres practical curriculum. Please ring the school to arrange a visit.
