Admissions

 

Parents considering applying for a place for their child at Meadowside School can arrange a visit by contacting the school office.

Call 01925 632705 or send an email: Meadowside_office@warrington.gov.uk

Warrington LEA policy ensures that all children living within a catchment area can be offered a place at a school near their home. The Council will contact parents during the autumn term, the year prior to admission, giving full details of the admission procedure and the dates by which parents need to inform the Council of their choice of school. As your local school we welcome all children to become part of ‘Our School Family’.

The school currently has an admission limit of 30 pupils per year group.

 

If our school is over subscribed, the priorities for admission are on the following bases:

  • Children in Warrington Care.
  • Children resident within the School Catchment Zone.
  • Children with older brothers or sisters in the school.
  • Children living nearest the school.

We have a 26-place nursery for each session (AM & PM) provided we can offer a placement, nursery children can be admitted the term after their third birthday.

There is one intake into our Reception Class each September. All these children will become 5 years old by the 31st August of the following year. Parents of younger children do have the option to defer entry to the reception class until the following January in the spring term.

Admission induction arrangements

Every effort is made to ensure that children settle quickly and happily into both nursery and school. Intakes to the nursery are staggered initially, enabling staff to give children more attention during their first weeks.

Children with Special Educational Needs/Disabilities
Most children with special educational needs or disabilities will attend an appropriate mainstream school where the governing body will be responsible for ensuring their needs are met. A small number of children, who have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND)  which cannot be met from within the resources normally available to children of a similar age, may be assessed by the authority for an Education & Health care plan.

For children where an Education Health and Care needs assessment has been carried out and an
Education Health and Care Plan is issued - dependent on the outcome of the assessment - these
children can have their needs provided for in either mainstream schools, designated provisions
attached to mainstream schools, or special schools.

Admission to the schools two Designated Provision classes are made by the Local Authority.

Any appeal with regard to the school named in the EHC plan would be to the special educational needs and disability tribunal. Support can be found at Warrington’s Information, Advice and Guidance service – www.warringtonsendiass.co.uk – or through the AskOllie Website.
 

Further information and support for children with SEND can be found on the ‘AskOllie’ website or from warrington.gov.uk/admissions – 01925 446226
