Enrolment Scheme

Welbourn School is experiencing significant roll growth which is putting our capacity under pressure. The Ministry of Education requires the Board of Trustees to implement an enrolment scheme (school zone) to avoid overcrowding at the school.

As part of this process, we need to consult with our school community, the wider community and neighbouring schools. The Board has prepared a proposed zone as a basis for consultation.

The introduction of an enrolment scheme will not affect children who are currently enrolled at Welbourn School. For children who have not yet enrolled at Welbourn School, the enrolment scheme means that:

  • if they live in the zone, they will have the right to enrol at Welbourn School;
  • if they live outside the zone, they will only be able to enrol at Welbourn School if there are places available in their year group. If more children wish to enrol than there are places available, places will be offered in accordance with the Education Act. 


We appreciate that this process will cause uncertainty for some families, and we will keep the school website updated.  If you have any questions, please contact the school.
