Our PAN (Planned Admission Number) is 60. 

We always encourage parents to visit the school before making their application.  If you would like to find out more about Woods Loke Primary School please contact the school office on 01502 561234.

Applying for a School place

Admission to the Nursery

Children become entitled to funded early years places the term after they turn three years. They are entitled to up to 15 hours of education at any early years setting. To apply for a place at Woods Loke Nursery, you will need to complete a Nursery Application Form which is available from the school office.  This form will then be held on our waiting list and you will be contacted when a place becomes available.

Each term a Nursery Admission Panel meeting takes place and children aged three or four years who are held on our waiting list are put forward.

Places are offered to four year old children, living within the catchment area with special circumstances:

  • Children who are subject of a child protection plan(under section 47 Children Act 1998)
  • Children identified as a child in need (under section 17 Children Act 1998)
  • Children with additional needs including special educational needs.
  • Children for whom English is an additional language.

Places are then offered to all other four year olds within the catchment area, in date of birth order.

Places are then offered to four year olds living outside of the catchment area, priority is given to those meeting the criteria set out above and then to those with siblings in the school. After this places will be given to all other four year olds, living outside of the catchment area, in date of birth order.

After this process, if places are still available, the same criteria will be followed for all three year olds held on the waiting list.
