Westgate Primary School Governing Body applies the regulations on admissions fairly and equally to all those who wish to attend this school. We are an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and abilities.

All applications will be treated on merit and in a sensitive manner. The only restriction we place on entry is that of number. If the number of children applying for entry exceeds the places available, the criteria set out below will be enforced to determine whether a child is accepted or not. It is our wish to allow parents the right to have a place at the school of their choice. However, this is not always possible, due to the excess demand on the school places available.
The level of ability of a child or any special needs that's/he may have plays no part in the admissions policy of this school.
In the event that a Warwickshire Community or Voluntary Controlled primary school is oversubscribed, then the following oversubscription criteria will be used when allocating places:
1a: Looked after children and all previously looked after children.
1b: Children who have been adopted through a CVAA UK agency.
2: Children who receive the Early Years Pupil Premium for their early years provider. Check your eligibility at: www.warwickshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals
3: Children who are currently, or have been at any point since 1st September 2015, subject to a Child in Need Plan of a Child Protection Plan.
4: Children living in the priority area for the school, who will have a sibling attending the same school in Years 1 - 6 at the time of admission in September 2022;
5: Other children living in the priority area for the school;
6: Children living outside the priority area for the school, who will have a sibling attending the same school in Years 1 – 6 at the time of admission in September 2022;
7: Other children living outside the priority area for the school.
In all cases, decisions are based on the distance between home and school by the shortest walking route, with priority going to those living nearest the school. This may apply equally to those living outside the authority boundaries.
The family of any child refused admission to the school have a formal right to appeal. Details may be obtained from the admissions service.
