Reception – September 2021
If you are looking to apply for a place in September 2021, we would normally recommend you make an appointment to have a look round the school. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not bringing any visitors into school. We have however, commissioned Happy Valley Productions to produce a video tour of our school. Click here to see this video. The video is an ideal opportunity for you to meet some of our children and various members of staff as well as see what school is like.
Once you have made your decisions, you need to apply online via the Lancashire County Council website. Alternatively, you can click here.
Likewise, you can download our Admissions Policy for September 2021 here.
Not sure when to apply?
If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, you need to apply between September 2020 and January 2021 to start school in September 2021.
If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018, you need to apply between September 2021 and January 2022 to start school in September 2022.
If your child was born between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019, you need to apply between September 2022 and January 2023 to start school in September 2023.
Admission into other classes
If you would like your child to start at The Willows after their first year in Reception, these are called non-routine admissions.
In order for us to admit a child into any other class, we need to have less children in that class than our admission number – 30. If this is the case, we can work with yourselves and your current school to ensure a smooth transition. Please note, in the interests of your child’s education, we do not allow any admissions part way through a term.
If you would like to come and have a look around our school, please contact Mrs. Barnes or Miss Stedman in the office on 01772 684371.
Should a class be full, i.e. 30 children, we will add your details to our Waiting List.
