Starting Reception Class September 2021

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. As we are unable to hold face to face meetings this year due to Covid-19 restrictions we have 2 virtual meetings in place. These meetings will be held on Tuesday 24 November at 6:30pm and Friday 27 November at 9:30am. If you would like to book a place on one of the meetings please contact the School office on 0113 2551601 or alternatively via the comments page on the website or email



If your child  was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 then they should start Primary School in September 2021. The easiest and quickest way to apply is online, you may apply for a School place between 1 November 2020 and 15 January 2021.  All applications for pupils to start in September 2021 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 2021.

Nursery Admissions September 2021.


If your child is due to start Nursery in September 2021 and you have registered your application prior to the 01 March 2021 with the Early Years office, offer of places will be sent out around Easter. Should you have sent in your application late or have not been offered a place initially you will be placed on our waiting list. If places become available we will be in touch accordingly.


All other Admissions


All other admisssions are referred to as In Year Transfers. All Leeds Schools handle their own in year applications for school places.


Step 1

Once you have decided on your preferred school/s, complete the 'In Year Common Preference Form' and return it directly to the school/s.


Step 2

Schools will write back to you to inform you whether they can offer a place.  If a school is unable to offer a place, the Admissions Team will write to you to advise of the schools in your area and any vacancies at these schools.


Please note:

Where a family has moved into the area, once a place has been offered, the child can usually start as soon as possible.

Where no house move has taken place and a child is transferring to us from a neighbouring school, they would normally start at the beginning of a term.
