Admissions Arrangements

Woodhall Primary School is a two-form entry school for boys and girls from 4-11 years of age. The school is part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust. 

We have a published admission number (PAN) of 60 for entry in Reception. We will admit this number of children to Reception each year if there are sufficient applications. Where fewer applicants than the published admission number are received, we will offer places to all those who have applied. If we are oversubscribed, after the admission of children with an Education Health Care Plan naming Woodhall Primary School, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below, in priority order:

  • Looked after children
  • Siblings
  • Catchment area
  • Outside catchment area

As an academy we decide our admissions criteria, however, Suffolk County Council co-ordinates all normal year of entry admissions and will communicate all admission decisions to parents.

Further details of the admissions procedure can be found in our Admissions Arrangements document below and on Suffolk County Council's website:
