Admission policy consultation

The Elliot Foundation Trust (TEFAT) is now consulting on behalf of Westwood Primary School the proposed admission policy for the academic year 2020/21 as required by the School Admission Code – December 2014


Click this link to see the proposed policy:


The consultation will run from 21 November 2018 to 14 January 2019.


The main changes from the previous policy are the addition of the following criteria:


Children for whom it is essential to be admitted to the Academy because of special circumstances to do with significant medical or social needs, which relate to the child or an immediate member of the child’s family. Applications must be supported by medical evidence from a GP or hospital consultant, social worker or similar professional.


Children with a sibling attending the Academy will now be considered under one criterion.


Children of staff, where the member of staff has been employed by the Academy for 2 or more years at the time of application, or the member of staff was recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.


If you would like comment on the proposed admissions policy, please email your comments to: Sharon Oliver Consultancy Ltd who is working on behalf of TEFAT at by 14 January 2019.
