Admissions

In Royal Greenwich, the local authority makes decisions about admitting children to community schools from Reception to Year 6.  For the full procedure and to apply for a space at Woodhill, please visit the Royal Greenwich Admissions website. View Royal borough of Greenwich Admissions page.

Nursery

We have provision for part time places either in the morning or the afternoon.  Every child will be given a part time place.  

You can upload our Nursery application form from the link below and send it back to info@woodhill.greenwich.sch.uk

Reception

Woodhill will admit 90 children into the three Reception classes each September.  

If there are more applications than places available, Royal Borough of Greenwich will use its admission criteria to decide which applicants should be offered a place.

Community schools and academies

Primary academy schools have the same arrangements as primary community schools.

You can find full details of the council's admission policies in the Royal Greenwich primary admission arrangements document.

Admissions priority

First priority will go to children with an education, health and care (EHC) plan naming the school.

Remaining places will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children who have been adopted or become subject to child arrangements or a special guardianship order immediately after having been looked after.

A looked after child is a child who is in the care of an English or Welsh local authority in accordance with section 22 (a) of the Children Act 1989.

  1. Children who have been in state care outside of England

A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society.

  1. Children with a chronic medical or social care need for a particular school.

This may also apply to an immediate family member. The application must be supported by a letter written by a professional such as a qualified medical practitioner, setting out the reasons why the school is the only one that can meet the child's needs and the implications for the child if they are not offered a place at the school.

Work commitments and childcare arrangements are not considered as being a chronic medical or social care need.

  1. Children with a sibling - living at the same address - who is already attending the school at the time of the child's admission.

Sibling means a full, half, step, adopted or foster brother or sister. This does not include siblings who attend a school's nursery provision.

  1. Other children based on home to school distance.

The distance from home to school is measured as a straight line from the centre of the home address to the centre of the school site.

If two applicants live an equal distance from the school, the offer of a place will be decided by random allocation. 

Attendance at a school's nursery, children of staff, work commitments and childcare arrangements are not part of the decision making process.

In–Year School Admissions

If you have recently been informed by Royal Greenwich admissions that your child has been allocated a place at Woodhill, Julie Sillince, our Home School Liaison Officer, will contact you and invite you and your child into school to complete the necessary forms.  You will also have the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, their class, and to familiarise yourself with our building. Once all relevant documentation has been completed and received, your child will usually join us within the following two weeks.
