Admissions

Cambridgeshire Local Authority (LA) is responsible for setting the admissions policy and criteria for this school. Parents wishing to apply for a place in September should apply for a place on-line at: www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/admissions applications open on 18 November and close on 15 January for the following September.  Parents will be informed in the April prior to admission whether a place is available for your child.  There are a limited number of paper copies of this form available at school during this time.

Places will be allocated on the basis of the Published Admission Number (PAN) for the year group and the admissions criteria set by the LA. 

Reception Places
The first round of allocations has now taken place and parents have been informed.

If your child has been offered a place in Reception at Great Wilbraham Primary School you will have been sent a letter inviting you to a meeting on Thursday 15th June at 7pm. At this meeting you will receive details of starting dates (part time and full time) as well as having the opportunity to meet staff and other representatives (School Nurse, PTFA, Catering Service, Governors).

Please note that applications for places in Reception 2018 will open in Autumn 2017. You will be able to apply online between 17th November 2017 and 15th January 2018. Alternatively, you will be able to complete the paper application form, copies of which will be available from the School Office from late November. 

 

Nursery Places

In Cambridgeshire, a child is deemed to be of nursery age from the beginning of the term following their 3rd birthday until 31st August following their fourth birthday. For this purpose, the terms are as follows (these are in line with the Early Years Education Funding term dates): 

Autumn term – 1st September to 31st December;
Spring term – 1st January to 31st March;
Summer term – 1st April to 31st August.

Parents can register their interest in a nursery place at any time however you must formally apply for a place using the local council nursery admission form, copies of which are available from the School.  Information and application forms are available from the School, the County Council website and from the LA Admissions Team.
