Prospective parents

Prospective parents are invited to visit school where new pupils are able to meet their potential Class Teacher. Additionally a visit will provide the opportunity to learn about the life of our school, including its ethos and values.

Any questions can also be asked and queries clarified. Visits and a tour of the school can be arranged by contacting the school office on 0191 263 0202

Full information on how to apply for a place in the school (including an online application form) is available on North Tyneside Council’s website www.northtyneside.gov.uk/schooladmission  or by clicking on the link on the school website.

Alternatively, you may complete a paper application available from North Tyneside Local Authority.

Admission Arrangements for Nursery

Western Community Primary School Nursery comprises of a 52 place nursery (26 am and 26 pm). Admissions to the Nursery class are managed by Mrs Larty (Senior Leader for Early Years.) Pupils are eligible to attend Nursery in September, once they have reached the age of 3 years old. In order to be considered for a place, parents/carers must apply directly to the school by filling out the below form.

We also offer 15 hour provision for eligible families please speak to the school office if you believe this applies to you. Please see the Childcare Choices website for further information - https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

When spaces allow we are sometimes able to offer places to children throughout the course of the year. The start date will be after the child’s 3rd birthday. A start date will be made as soon as possible after this date for children who are on our waiting list.

The school has a waiting list that parents/carers can register their children on in advance of admission, although it is stressed that putting a name on the waiting list does not guarantee the offer of  a place in school. When the school has received a completed Nursery Admission form, places will be allocated. Parents will be asked to confirm that they are accepting the place and will receive an invitation to a new starters meeting, where they will receive an admission pack, detailing start dates and other relevant information.

Admission Arrangements for Reception

Prospective parents are invited to visit the school during the autumn term before the in-take year, to see the school in action. All Reception children are admitted during the first week of the autumn term in September.

Parents are informed of the admission arrangements in some detail during visits to the school in the summer term. There is an opportunity during this term for children to visit their new class and teacher and for parents to meet staff and children, view the school, find out about our philosophy and organisation and raise any questions.
