Westvale Park Primary Academy Admissions Process
We admit 60 children to our school in the September following their fourth birthday. Whenever possible, we like children to visit the school before they are admitted to familiarise themselves with the building, and the staff with whom they will be working. In the Summer Term of each year, children due to join the school in September visit us for part of the school day, and their parents are invited to an evening visit. Our staff visit all pre-schools and nurseries to discuss the children due to transition to us.
Please see our separate nursery page for information about nursery admissions.
To apply for a reception place for September 2024, you will need to access Surrey County Council's admissions portal. The closing date for applications is 15 January 2024.
