Virtual Open Event- Thinking about your child joining us in September 2021? Please visit our Admissions page to view our virtual tours.



Open Evening 2021: As a result of Covid-19 restrictions, it will not be possible to offer our normal Open Evening visits where our school prefects would have taken great pride in showing you around the incredible facilities we offer. This is such a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to ask our children about their learning experiences on a day-to-day basis along with their opportunities to engage in enrichment activities. However, as soon as it is safe to do so, we will organise a weekend sporting event for children to attend when it is safe to do so, following the Government’s guidelines at all times to keep everyone in our school community safe. We have high aspirations for all our children here, at West Moors Middle School, where their needs are placed at the heart of all decisions made. We want our children to thrive to be the best that they can be, on their own individual journey, and we look forward to your child joining our West Moors Middle School family.

Open Events for Admissions in September 2021

The Headteacher has also provided small, socially distanced, guided tours daily, which started promptly at 09.00-10.15 and included an information session. Bookings were capped at one visitor from each household and a maximum of five visitors each day so no more than six adults are together. These morning tours took place on the following dates:

7th October 2020 - 9th October 2020

12th October 2020 - 15th October 2020

These opportunities provided parents/ carers with an opportunity for them to visit and not only meet us in person but also feel the care, positivity and purposeful learning environment that West Moors Middle School provides to enable all children to reach their potential.

For further information or booking please contact the school office on 01202 872474 or office@westmoorsmid.dorset.sch.uk.

As an exciting addition to this, following Government Guidelines, when it is safe to do so, we will be inviting all children who are hoping to join us next September 2021 to a special sports extravaganza on our school’s grounds on a Saturday during the Summer term (date to be announced). This will provide them with an opportunity to meet other children and staff, and enjoy getting to know their new school. In addition, the PTFA will run their amazing BBQ so all in all, it will be a wonderful way to welcome all new children soon to join our school family.

Admissions Process

West Moors Middle School (PAN: 216), uses the local authority arrangement for School Admissions. The agreement is mindful of national requirements supporting all young people, including those who are disabled, in a fair and non-discriminatory way, when securing admission to school. In addition to this West Moors Middle School makes appropriate reasonable adjustments to accommodate those who are disabled. Where adaptations are required to support physical or medical needs, the school liaises with health services and parents / carers to ensure that appropriate arrangements are made to meet individual medical conditions. More information can be found in the Local Offer information held on the Local Authority’s website (www.dorsetforyou.com/local-offer)

All our admissions are through Dorset Admissions
