If your child reaches five years of age between 1st September and 31st August then s/he will be admitted to full time school on the first day of the Autumn Term that September.
We would like to hear from you if you are exploring the possibility of your child attending Westbrook Old Hall so please contact one of our office staff to register your interest. We hold a meeting each November for prospective parents and this will include a walk around the school. Once your child has been offered a place here, there will be an information meeting in June to assist you and your child in the transition to primary school.
If you are interested in applying for a place at Westbrook Old Hall, please read the 'Admission Arrangements' document, below. We have also provided a link to the Local Authority website should you require any further information.
CONSULTATION ON ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2020/2021
Admission authorities are required to consult if they intend to make changes to their admission arrangements. The law states that a consultation to make changes must take place for a minimum of six weeks between 1 October and 31 January.
We are not proposing to make any changes to our admission arrangements for academic year 2020/2021 however other schools in Warrington are proposing to make changes to their admission arrangements for pupils joining from September 2020.
The consultation period runs from 6 December 2018 until 31 January 2019.
To view the proposed arrangements, please visit the Council’s website.
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Most children with special educational needs will attend an appropriate mainstream school where the governing body will be responsible for ensuring their needs are met.
A small number of children who have special educational needs which cannot be met from within the resources normally available to children of a similar age will be assessed by the authority, in accordance with the procedure laid down in the Children and Families Act 2014 and in accordance with the Code of Practice 2014. Assessments are carried out after consultation with parents or guardians who are given full details of the results of assessments.
For children where an Education Health Care (EHC) needs assessment has been carried out and an EHC Plan is issued, dependent on the outcome of the assessment, these children can have their needs provided for in either mainstream schools, designated provisions attached to mainstream schools or special schools.
Any appeal with regard to the school named in the statement would be to the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Tribunal.
A leaflet, entitled 'Special Needs Provision in Warrington' is available from the Special Educational Need and Disability Information Advisory Service (SENDIAS) on 01925 442978.
