For your child to gain a place in our Reception class please complete the Primary Admissions 2017 booklet. This booklet should be issued by your child’s current Nursery or can be completed online Here


You will then be advised by the local council as to whether your child has gained a place at Widnes Academy.


Once a place has been awarded  the school will contact you by letter to share meeting dates for parents and arrange visit days for the children.


Arrangements for In Year Admissions


For admission during term time in any class we ask that you approach the school directly for a school registration form and a Halton in year admission form. Once these are complete a start date will be agreed.


Please note – For all admissions into Widnes Academy and Nursery the school office will be required to take a photocopy of a Birth certificate which will be kept securely in your child’s school file in  the school office.


Admissions to Nursery


Children are eligible for free Nursery provision  at Widnes Academy Nursery from their 3rd birthday and are allowed to start from this date entering either our Morning or Afternoon session.


Nursery application forms can be completed as soon as your child is born and will be retained on file until they are due to turn 3.


When your child is then approaching their 3rd birthday Nursery staff will be in contact to organise and arrange Nursery visit days and will confirm their start date.


Nursery application forms can be downloaded from this website or by calling into the school office.
