Wilbraham Primary School is part of The Aspire Educational Trust
At Wilbraham Primary, we are proud of our rich diversity of culture and backgrounds as it provides us with a wealth of diversity on which the school way of life is based and helps serve our local community.
Admission for Nursery aged children
We provide full time nursery places for children whose third birthday falls between September 1st to August 31st of the previous academic year. Children can only be admitted into our nursery once they have turned three years old.
Parents/carers should contact the school office if they wish to place their child’s name on our nursery waiting list. Admission to nursery is not based on how long your child’s name has been on the waiting list and unfortunately putting their name on the waiting list earlier does not mean they will get preference to a place.
Nursery places will be allocated for each September in the following April and parents/carers will be contacted by letter if their child is offered a place at our school. If your child is not successful in obtaining a place, their name will remain on our waiting list and we will notify you in writing of this.
For further information on our admissions procedures for Nursery aged children, please see our Nursery Admissions page.
Applying for a Nursery Place
To apply for a Nursery place, you can contact our school directly. You will need to complete a Nursery Admission Form which you can obtain from the school office.
Admissions for Reception aged children
The Local Authority of Manchester is responsible for the admissions of all our reception places, including children who are already in our nursery class. The Local Authority will write to you explaining how you can apply for a reception place for your child. The Local Authority Reception application must be completed by parents/carers online by the nominated date in the year before your child is due to start reception. A late application could result in your child not getting a place at the school of their choice.
Parents/carers who have a nursery place at Wilbraham Primary School DO NOT automatically get a place in reception at our school.
For further information on our admissions procedures for reception aged children or for the contact details of the Local Authority Admissions Department, please see our
Reception Admissions page.
Admissions for Year 1 to Year 6 children
The Local Authority of Manchester is responsible for the admissions of all other year group places at Wilbraham Primary. You will need to contact the Local Authority to request an "In-Year Admission Form". Once you have completed this form and returned it to the Local Authority, they will place your child’s name on a waiting list for your preferred school and you will be contacted when a place becomes available.
For further information on our admissions procedures for Year 1 to Year 6 children or for the contact details of the Local Authority Admissions Department, please see our Year 1 to Year 6 Admissions page.
