Our Admissions Information
Children start at Westfield Primary School in the September of the school year in which they will become five. Parents should apply on line through the Surrey County Council website.
The school arrange reception class tours, and prospective applicants are invited to attend. Before joining our reception class, pupils are invited to take part in an Induction Programme (see under Early Years).
A meeting for new parents is arranged in the summer term, prior to the child starting in September. The class teacher will talk about the organisation and curriculum in the reception class, as well as the induction programme. Parents of new children will also be given the opportunity to meet with the class teacher to share relevant information which will support their child's induction to school. The school accepts applications for pupils to join other year groups, including Year 3, providing places are available.
At Westfield the published admission number is 60 at age 4+. When there are more applications than there are places available, Surrey's policy is to admit the children in the following priority order:
- Looked after and previously looked after children
- Exceptional social/medical need
- Siblings - children who have a sibling at the school at the time of their admission
- Nearest school
- Any other applicant
For the majority of Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, in the event of any category being oversubscribed, home to school will be measured by a straight line from the address point of the pupil's house, as set by Ordnance Survey to the nearest school gate for pupils to use.
Where there are more applicants than places available, waiting lists will operate for each year group according to the over subscription criteria shown for each school, above and without regard to the date the application was received or when a child's name was added to the waiting list.
