Woolston C of E Primary School
Woolston C of E Primary School is part of The Ascension family. Originally the school and church shared The Mission building on Warren Lane. The school is now located on Epping Drive, just across the green from church.
Our Vicar, leads Collective Worship (assembly) in school each week, and the children visit church regularly for services and to support the RE curriculum. Several church members go into school to read with children, and we hold a number of joint community activities throughout the year with the PTA.
You can find out more about our wonderful school on their website woolstonceprimary.co.uk
If you are a parent with a pre-school child, and would like to apply for a place for your child at the school under priority 3 or 4 (see admissions policy for more information) you must attend church at least once per month in the 12 months prior to the closing date for admissions. (For example, if your child is due to start primary school in September 2021, you would need to attend once per month from January 2020 to December 2020). (**Update July 2020: please see amendment below to take into account the temporary closure of church buildings.)
Please print and bring this form with you to church so that we can evidence your attendance in order to write a letter to school for admission under priority 3 or 4.
Of course, we would hope that even if you start to attend church to help you gain a place in our school for your child, that this would be the beginning of you joining The Ascension family and continuing to worship with us. You can find more information about our services and other activities on this website.
Update to admissions policy July 2020 ** In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church [or, in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church [or in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] or alternative premises have been available for public worship”.
