Admissions

Admission Arrangements
 
 
Arrangements for admission to Winwick School are made through Warrington Borough Council on behalf of the Governing Body and are conducted within the terms of the Admission Policy as set by the Governors of the school.

Children whose date of birth falls between 1st September and 31st August can be admitted to school on the first day of the Autumn Term prior to their 5th birthday.

It assists our planning if we are notified of your intention to place your child at Winwick School at least two years before his or her due date for admission. Please email the school so we can keep this on record winwick_primary@sch.warrington.gov.uk 

The admissions policy is reviewed annually.  The most recent admissions policy will be given to you when you enquire about registering your child for admission.
 
The Admissions Committee of the Governing Body meet twice annually to review the policy, consider applications for relevant pupils against the admissions criteria. They will also meet to consider any appeals if the over subscription criteria comes into play. Governors liaise with the Local Authority Admissions team over such matters.
