If you are the parent/carer of a child whose date of birth falls between 01 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, your child is due to start primary school in September 2021. It’s a very important and exciting time for you and your family so we want to make you aware of the admissions process to make it as easy as possible for you to secure at place at Werneth Primary School.
Do I need to apply?
Yes, everybody needs to apply. Even if your child already attends Werneth Primary School Nursery you need to apply for a school place.
How do I apply?
Complete the online application at www.oldham.gov.uk/admissions. You can only apply online - It’s quick and easy and means you get the school offer directly via email. You can find more information, a guide and links to school websites here too. The online system opens on 1 September 2020.
When do I need to complete my application?
The closing date for all applications is 15 January 2021 at 5pm.
What happens if I don’t complete my application on time?
This means you may not get a place at your preferred school. Your application won’t be looked at until after we’ve allocated places to all those that arrived on time.
Can I get help to do this online?
If you don’t have access to the internet there are computers in all Oldham libraries. Unfortunately, the libraries are currently closed due to the government’s current Coronavirus guidelines.
What information will I be asked for?
You will need to provide information about yourself, your child, any siblings in school and your preferred school (some voluntary aided schools may ask you to complete a supplementary form and or provide a baptism certificate).
If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Team either by email email@example.com or call 0161 770 4213.
