Admissions for Reception
Applications for places are dealt with by Leeds City Council (0113 222 4414). Leeds Council will handle all questions and issues arising; we remain neutral in this process. We have one intake each year, at the start of the Autumn Term. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday.
Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school or to visit on an Open Day.Parents are usually asked to complete preference forms in the Autumn of the year before the child starts school. Places are allocated in the late Spring / early Summer Term – we have a maximum intake of 30 children. Following this stage, some parents choose to appeal if their choices have not been met. We’ve recently had a lengthy waiting list at this stage.
Once we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to an Open Evening with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have. This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. Soon after, children are invited to visit the Reception class for short visits. Reception class staff from school visit each child in their current nursery or at home.

Parents of older children, moving into the area, are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school and to discuss admission with the Head of School. Unlike admission into Reception, an application for a place can be dealt with directly by us. You should use the In-Year Common Preference Form to apply to us and other local schools.
If you are interested in a place for your child in Year 1 to Year 6 (age 5 to 11 Years old) you need an "In Year Common Preference Form" ( ICPF). This is available from school or click on the link below.
If you would like to know anything more about getting a place for your child at Weetwood Primary School, please contact the school office on 0113 3230450 or the Leeds Admissions Team (Leeds City Council) on 0113 2224414.
