Choosing Whitewater CofE Primary School for your child
Choosing a school for your child is an important task, a process that generates many questions. Whilst we have worked hard in this website to create a flavour of the school, nothing can replace the opportunity of looking around and seeing the learning in action. There are specific Open Days if you are considering the school for your child starting in Reception. Please see our visit dates and days in the news section of the website or contact the school office. If you are considering Whitewater for a child of a different age and would like to make a visit to the school please contact the school office who will be pleased to arrange an appointment to tour the school. A link to the school's contact details can be found here.

Details for the main round application process for entry into Year R in 2024 will be published when available.
An in-year admission is when a child needs an immediate school place during the school year. There are two main reasons for this. You might be moving house or be unhappy with your child’s current school. You can apply for an in-year place up to four weeks before the place is needed.
If your child is having difficulties at their current school, please speak to the headteacher to try and resolve the situation in the first instance. Changing school can be difficult for a child and rarely solves their difficulties. It is important to consider the emotional, social and academic consequences for your child connected with a change of school before contemplating making an application to another school.
You can find all the details about applying for a school place, including the online application form, here (https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/admissions/applicationprocess)
If you have any further questions, please contact the school office directly.
