When can my child start school?

In Warwickshire children start Infant or Primary School the September after their fourth birthday. The law says all children must start school by the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday. If a child attends an Infant School, they will transfer to a Junior/Primary School in the September following their seventh birthday.

When should I apply for a school place?

The first year of school in Warwickshire is called Reception Year. You will need to apply for your child’s first school place in the September prior to your child starting school. For children starting school in September 2021 application forms are available from September 2020. All forms must be completed and returned to the Admissions Service by January 2021.

Wellesbourne CE Primary School hold a meeting for New Parents of children entering school in the June prior to their September start.

This online presentation has now taken place for a number of years, and was set up in order to provide more information to you as parents, prior to your child starting school next year.

Our meeting is intended to provide you with information that might allow you to make a more informed choice of school, and to guide you through the application process.
