Admissions to Voluntary Aided Schools

The Governing Body is responsible for the allocation of places and works with North Somerset School Admissions Team to help parents who are applying for school places for their children at any time during their education. The main stages of applying for a school place are:

  • Reception Intake – when children start school for the first time (in the school year in which they become 5 years old)

  • Transfer to Secondary School – when pupils move from the Primary/Junior stage to a Secondary School

  • In-Year – when parents who wish to change their child’s school at any other time, for example because of a house move                       

Free School Meals and Universal Free School Meals

North Somerset have replaced the old free school meal (FSM) paper application forms with an online checker.   Parents will have to apply online and will get an instant decision on eligibility.  If successful, the system will generate a confirmation that parents can then print off and give to the school.  Where parents do not have printers, we can accept either an email (office@worleburyprimary.com) or by coming into school and showing the confirmation to the admin office on a smart phone.

Due to the roll out of Universal Credit, any child entitled to free school meals should keep their entitlement until the end of the school stage they are in as at March 2022. The school stage refers to primary, secondary, or sixth form. This means many people should not reapply until they change from primary school to secondary school, or secondary school to sixth form in September 2022. These children should reapply in the Summer holidays before they change school (so no earlier than July 2022).

If any child moves schools in this time, the parent should email fsm@n-somerset.gov.uk to update your records.

Please note that the entitlement is per child, not per family, so it is now very common for one sibling to be entitled to free school meals but a second to not be entitled.

Any parent/carer with a child not currently entitled to free school meals can apply online at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals

For any queries, please email fsm@n-somerset.gov.uk

Even if your child is receiving universal free school meals because they are in Reception or KS1, please claim for free school meals if you are entitled to it as the school receives extra funding and free milk will be provided each day for each child - see leaflets below for more details:
