Places in our Nursery are allocated according to availability in the term after a child’s third birthday.  Parents wishing their child to attend our nursery should fill in an application form at the school office or you can click the link below to complete the application online, the child will then be added to the waiting list.  If you have recently moved into the area and require a place in nursery please contact the school office to enquire about the availability of places.

Requests for places in Reception should be made directly to Leeds City Council admissions department, the number for admissions is 0113 222 4414.  Parents are required to fill in a preference form which you should receive during the school year before your child is due to start Reception.  The school office can help you with this process.


Admissions at all other times will be dealt with by our school office.  If you are new to the area or are looking to transfer from another school please contact the school office to enquire about available places. If there are no spaces available and you would like to place your child on our waiting list, an In-Year-Common-Preference Form must be completed, your child's current school will have an ICPF form or there's a link below if you would like to print one off at home, the ICPF must be completed by your child's current school and then sent on directly to us.

At whatever stage your child starts school with us here at Westwood we will ensure they settle in as quickly and happily as possible.  You will be contacted in good time prior to your child’s start date and arrangements will be made for you and your child to visit to the school, have a meeting with the head and class teacher  and for all relevant information to be passed onto you.

Waiting List

If you have a child on our waiting list and a place becomes available we will contact you to offer a place. If no contact has been made, this would mean a place has not become available. The waiting list's for all our Year groups opens every September on the first day of each academic year and closes on 31st August. If you have a child who is still on our waiting list at the end of the academic year and would like them re-adding to the waiting list when the new year begins, you must re-apply.
