For your child to gain a place in our Reception class please complete the Primary Admissions 2022 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.
We are currently offering Virtual Tours of our Early Year Foundation Stage for those parents wishing to apply for places in our Nursery or Reception class
