Wardley Primary School


All Wardley Primary School places are allocated in accordance with the Local Authority (LA) admissions policy. This is published annually in the Gateshead LA Information for Parents Booklet, which is made available to parents prior to admission. Further information on the LA September 2024 Policies for all Gateshead schools can also be found by clicking here.

As part of the induction process, parental meetings are held during the summer term for pupils about to enrol for Nursery and for Reception classes. During the autumn term, nursery pupils have a preliminary visit. This is followed by attendance on a short session time that is extended to full time. Depending on the availability of places, children who attain the age of three years during the year are admitted at termly intervals following their third birthday.

Nursery Admissions Policy 2023 – 2024

For admission to our reception class, children attend full-time for two days in the first week. After this initial week, the children attend full-time unless there is a specific reason why this cannot take place.  This allows children to get familiar with the daily routines, such as lunchtime, as well as providing assessment time for the staff. Should any difficulties arise because of this procedure then the school endeavours to resolve these with the parents concerned.
