Starting Reception Class September 2022

Open Sessions normally take place during the Autumn term for prospective parents of children in Reception.  The sessions provided an opportunity to see the School in action and find out about what Westroyd has to offer. Dates will be released on our website once the admissions round for September 2022 has closed. 


If your child  was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 then they should start Primary School in September 2022. The easiest and quickest way to apply is online, you may apply for a School place between 1 November 2021 and 15 January 2022.  All applications for pupils to start in September 2022 should be made via the Schools Admission Team at Leeds City Council. (See contact details below). Offers of School places will be sent out in April 2022.

In Year Transfers - moving from one school to another


A parent can apply for a place for their child at any school, at any time.

In the first instance, an In Year Common Preference Form needs to be completed by the family and taken into their current school. Their current school will complete relevant sections of the application form and then pass this back to the family. 

At this point, the completed form should be returned to the requested school who will check their waiting lists and class sizes. A decision cannot be made until the In year Common Preference form is submitted to Leeds City Council Admissions Team and the application appears on the schools waiting lists. The exception to this would be if a space is available in the requested class and there is no waiting list. 

The Head Teacher will then contact the parent(s) to discuss a visit date, transition morning and then a confirmed start date for full time attendance.
