Admissions - Reception to Year 6



Admission of School Age Pupils 


There are two types of school admission at Willaston Primary Academy, the annual intake in September for reception age children and 'In-year' admissions.


For admissions to our nursery Little Acorns for 3-4 year olds, please see below.


For our annual Reception Class intake we have 30 places available. Should the school be oversubscribed then places are allocated on criteria specified by the academy's Admissions Policy.  Admissions for the Reception class intake are administered by Cheshire East Local Authority. 


If your child is currently in another school or the admissions window is closed you will need to apply via Cheshire East local Authority for an 'In-year' admission. Again, our pupil admission number is 30 places per year group.  The same criteria will be applied found in the Admissions Policy below.


Further information  is available here - Cheshire East Admissions Information
