Admissions to our school
As a Local Authority (LA) maintained school, all our admissions are handled by South Gloucestershire Local Authority. If you are considering a place at Wheatfield, we would strongly encourage you to come and visit our school before applying for a place. If your child is starting school and you are interested in a Reception place, we hold a number of 'open days' each year which are detailed below. If your child is joining another year group because you are relocating from another area or school then we will be happy to show you round - simply call or email the office to make an appointment.
Applying for a Reception Place
The deadline for submitting applications for Reception classes for September 2020 is fast approaching on 15 January 2020. If you missed out on attending one of our open mornings it's not too late to contact us on 01454 868610 to arrange a tour.
All applications need to be made through South Gloucestershire School Admissions. You can contact them on 01454 868008 or visit their website by clicking on the icon below. Applications can also be made via this link.
In Year Admissions
There are many reasons why a child may need to start a new school. We are always happy to welcome new children to our school and, as with children joining Reception, all places are allocated by South Gloucestershire Admissions. If you are considering a place at Wheatfield we would encourage you to do two things before applying.
Firstly, speak to Admissions to find out whether we currently have spaces in your child's year (we offer 60 spaces per year group). You can call Admissions on 01454 868008 or email them via the form on their website (click the icon below to visit their site).
Secondly, come and have a look around our school. You can book an appointment by calling a member of our office team on 01454 868610. They will arrange for a senior member of staff to show you around and answer any questions you might have.
If you are offered a place at school and haven't been able to visit then we will ask you to come and meet with us before your child starts. This will help us to make sure your child's first weeks at Wheatfield are as successful and fulfilling as possible.
