Thank you for applying to Westbourne Primary School for your child starting in September.

You will receive notification of your place on Thursday 16th April 2020 and your welcome pack will then be sent.  This must be returned to school no later than Monday 4th May 2020.

You will then be invited to a morning/afternoon session where you will meet the teachers,  members of the PTA, and have a chance to taste the meals provided by Chartwells.  This is should happen early July - details will follow

Looking forward to meeting you then.

Important Information

You must apply on time.

Online applications can be made from Monday 7th October 2019.

It is very important that you apply before the closing date of Wednesday 15th January 2020; you cannot apply online after this date.

If your application is received after the closing date you seriously disadvantage your chances of gaining a place at one of your preferred schools.

Applications received after the closing date are late applications and will only be considered after all those that were received on time.

It is your responsibility as a parent to ensure that your application is received by The Pupil Admission Team on time.

You can apply online for your child's school place by visiting www.westussex.gov.uk/admissions

Westbourne Primary School's prospectus can be found on our website.  You can contact the office on 01243 372726 and speak to Mrs Paula Caird to arrange an appointment to visit the school.

Your Preferences

We advise all parents to think very carefully about their three preferences and to use them wisely.

School places are allocated according to the published oversubscription criteria for that school.  This can include criteria such as whether you live in the catchment area, whether there are siblings already at the school and the distance you live from the school.

Please be realistic in your preferences. You have a higher priority for local schools.  If you choose an oversubscribed school, the further away you live the less likely you are to be offered a place.

Please note that personal circumstances, such as child care arrangement, are not part of the oversubscription criteria for any school and will not be taken into consideration.

Finally, we always advise parents to include their catchment school as one of their three preferences.
