INFORMATION ABOUT ADMISSIONS TO WESTDENE PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

The arrangements for the admission of children to this school at age 4+ are made by the Council. A detailed description of the arrangements is contained in the guidance ‘Infant, Junior & Primary School Admissions in Brighton & Hove 2018/2019’ which can be found at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/schooladmissions .  A hard copy can be obtained from the School Admissions Team, Hove Town Hall, Hove BN3 3BQ (tel: 01273 293653). A copy is also available for inspection in the school.

 

However, parents/carers may find it helpful to know that, if there are insufficient places available to meet demand, these will be allocated to children in accordance with the following list of priorities:

 

i)             Children in the care of the local authority; or who were previously in the care of the local authority;

 ii)            Children with compelling medical or other exceptional reasons for attending the school;

iii)           Children who in September 2018 will have a brother or sister at the school or at a linked junior school;

iv)           Children transferring between a linked infant and junior school;                                               

  v)            Other children

 

If it should be necessary to decide between children within any of these priority groups, this will be done by giving the places to those children who live closest to the school.  The following information, reflecting the outcome of the admission arrangements at 4+ for September 2017 may give parents/carers some idea of their chances of obtaining a place for their child at this school in September 2018. These allocations were made using the equal preference system.
