Whitegate Primary and Nursery School


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

Whitegate Primary School - consultation on proposed admission arrangements for the 2020/21 school year


The governors of Whitegate Primary School consulted on the school’s admission arrangements during the period 18 December 2018 and 31 January 2019. These arrangements are for pupils who will be starting school for the first time in September 2020, or requesting admission to the School between September 2020 and July 2021.


The governors of Whitegate Primary School are responsible for offering or refusing places at the school.


The deadline for responding was 31 January 2019. A copy of the determined arrangements is now displayed on this website.


Applying for a place in our Nursery


We have a 85 place Nursery, offering FREE FULL-TIME places.  Children can join our Nursery when they are 3 years old.  

To apply for a place for your child please contact Mrs Davidson at the main reception or on 0115 9152944 or email  and ask for an application form. 

Applications can be made at any time but will not be processed until your child is 3 years old.

Applying for a place in Reception, KS1 and KS2


Whitegate is part of Transform multi academy trust.  The Local Authority co-ordinates applications to our school on our behalf.
