Westlea Primary School is part of the Brunel Academies Trust. The Trustees of Brunel Academies Trust are responsible for the admissions policy and arrangements. The school agrees to comply with the requirements of the School Admissions and Appeals Codes and to Swindon Borough Council’s co-ordinated scheme and Fair Access Protocols.

Westlea view each child as an individual, with individual personal, academic and life skill needs. Our aim is to provide for these needs within a rich, physical and personal environment and through the provision of a motivating and stimulating curriculum. Through new experiences that will enrich their lives and characters, they will be able to continually improve on their personal best and to achieve more than they ever thought possible. In a caring atmosphere where there is openness, respect, trust, good relationships and concern for each individual, we will endeavour to ensure that every child leaves this school feeling valued, valuable and well prepared for the life that awaits them. Pupils will normally be admitted at age 4 in the September of the school year in which they reach their fifth birthday.

Parents have the right to defer their child’s start date at school until the term after their child’s 5th birthday. Parents can request that their child takes up a part-time place until the child reaches statutory school age.

A child must legally be in full-time education in the term following their 5th birthday.
