South Wellfield First School




Parents are asked to complete an application form, available from the school office. Names are recorded on a waiting list as they are received and letters are sent out to confirm that this has been done. Offers of places are usually sent out early in the preceding spring term, with an invitation to attend a meeting when further arrangements are explained.


If the number of applications exceeds the places available, the criteria for admission are the same as that for pupils of statuary school age:

  1.  Looked after children.
  2.  Children living in the catchment area.
  3.  If places remain, priority is given to children with brothers and sisters who currently attend South Wellfield  First School.
  4.  Any remaining places are allocated to children living nearest the school.
  5.  Children with Special Educational Needs.



There is no automatic transfer from a Nursery Class attached to a school to a Reception Class in the same school. Applications for a place in a Maintained school are made separately and subject to the Admissions Policy. 


New Admission to Nursery and Reception September 2020


We would like to offer a warm welcome to all of the children who will be starting Nursery or Reception in September.  We look forward to meeting everyone.


However, like all schools we are temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  This means that we are unable to arrange visits at present.  We will contact you whenever the situation changes.  In the meantime please take the opportunity to have a look at our website and twitter page.


If you have any queries please contact us at
