Admissions

If your child reaches five years of age between 1st September and 31st August, they will be admitted to full time school on the first day of the Autumn Term that September.

 

The Omega Academy Trust is the admitting authority for Westbrook Old Hall Primary School and allocates places with their determined admissions arrangements.

 

2021/22 admission arrangements for Reception class places at Westbrook Old Hall Primary School are the same as those published by the local authority for admissions to our school in the last academic year.

 

The local authority is responsible for co-ordinating all our admissions.  Please contact their school admissions team if you have any questions (01925 446226 or schooladmissions@warrington.gov.uk).

 

If you are considering Westbrook Old Hall Primary School for your child, starting school in September 2021, we have an open event in November for you to meet some of our fantastic staff and have a look around the school.

 

If you are looking to transfer your child from one school to another mid-year, more information about in-year admissions can be found on the local authority website (please see the link below):

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 and Care needs assessment has been carried out and an Education Health and Care 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 tribunal (SEND).


A leaflet entitled ‘Special Needs Provision in Warrington’ is available from the SENDIAS (Special Educational Needs, Disability Information Advisory Service) on 01925 442978.
