Admission 2023/2024

Woodlands Primary School is an academy in the Greenshaw Learning Trust and the Trust is the admissions' authority for the school. The admissions process is administered by the school in accordance with the Admissions Policy of the Trust. The Greenshaw Learning Trust Admissions arrangements can be found on their website here.

Woodlands Primary School is part of the co-ordinated admissions scheme for primary admissions. Parents must complete their Home Local Authority (LA) Common Application Form (CAF) and return it to their Home Local Authority by the closing date.

Please find two versions of the application form.

  1. The Interactive Student Registration Form can be downloaded and completed electronically. Once completed, it can be emailed back to us at

Although we often run tours of the school during term-time, an appointment is necessary due to Covid-19. If you would like to make an appointment, please call us on 01454 866535. Please understand we may not be able to accommodate visits at this time. 

Please pay careful attention to the South Gloucestershire Local Authority’s applications deadlines, usually around the end of October (Secondary) and Mid-January (Primary), as late applications cannot always be considered.

In-Year Applications

To apply for a place at Woodlands Primary School other than at the specified dates of entry, parents should contact the school to obtain the In-Year Admission Form.  The In-Year Admission Form should be completed and returned directly to the school.

Where there are more applicants than places available, the school will maintain a waiting list according to the oversubscription criteria detailed in the school’s admission arrangements without regard to the date the application was received or when a child’s name was added to the waiting list.

Positions on the waiting lists may go down as well as up.  This is because other children might be added to the waiting list who have a greater priority for a place against the school’s admission criteria; for example, when new families move into the area or when other families who had not previously named Woodlands Primary School as a preference, ask to go on the waiting list after the initial allocations date.
