We invite all parents interested in applying for a place at West Jesmond Primary to come and visit our school.

A place is offered, if there is a vacancy, to the applicant at the top of the waiting list. If we cannot offer you a place you will be notified by letter.

Further information about applying for a school place, admission criteria or transferring schools during an academic year can be found on the Local Authority web-page ‘School Admissions’. Information can be found on the Local Authority website about previous cohorts and admission information

There is a right for people to object about the policy to the Schools Adjudicator (OSA). See the Schools Adjudicator website for more information on how to do this.
