Admissions

Welcome to Wheatfield Primary school and thank you for looking at becoming part of the Wheatfield Family

Choosing a primary school that your child will be happy and thrive in is a big decision and a very important one.  This year to make that difficult decision even harder, parents are unable to visit schools and meet teachers in person. As a school we want to help make this decision as easy as possible for you and your family.
