Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!


Open Day for prospective parents

We are really pleased you are considering sending your child to our school!

Choosing your child's school is a very important decision and we realise you would benefit from a visit and meeting the people who make our school the brilliant place it is!

To help you make this crucial choice, we have arranged a dedicated Open Day for any prospective parents so you can see Wigton Moor Primary School in operation. We understand that parents have many questions about their child starting school and, as well as a tour of the school, we will endeavour to answer these queries.

Our Open Day is on Thursday 21st November 2019. Tours will be at 9.30am, 10.30am & 1.30pm. (There will be a crèche available throughout the day). For working parents, there will be a further 'out of hours' open session with tours around the school and a chance to meet me on Thursday 21st November at 5.00pm

Please email Mrs.Randhawa at to book your place on the Open Day or the 'out of hours' session.

Unfortunately we cannot show prospective parents around the school individually, or at any other time other than on the Open Day. Our school is very popular and is therefore heavily subscribed. We have up to 200 enquiries every September and showing round individuals could be disruptive to the children's learning when the foundations for the year are being set. However, all the information that you may require is available on this website, so feel free to browse.

If you have any further questions, you are welcome to e-mail me at

I look forward to meeting you on the day.

Mrs. E. Bown


Admission to the school is in accordance with the criteria laid down in the Leeds City Council Admissions to Primary Schools Booklet. This gives priority to children with special educational needs, those with siblings already attending the school and children living within the school’s catchment area. If places are available in any year group, other children from outside the area may be admitted. The maximum number of pupils that can be admitted to our reception, year one and two classes is thirty (sixty per year group).


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 


The school has pupils from 4 to 11 years (Reception to Year 6). Children are admitted at the beginning of the school year (September) in which they will have their fifth birthday.

If your child was born between 1st November 2015 and 31st August 2016 they should start school in September 2020, you will receive a letter from Leeds City Council inviting you to apply.

You must submit an application even if you would like a place at your priority catchment school or your child has a sibling in school.


Families moving into the area and seeking school places for their children should contact the school office and the School Admissions section of Leeds City Council. If you wish to transfer, you will need to complete an In Year Common Preference Form - please see below link. Please return the completed form to the school either in person or by post. During school holidays you can email the form to or post to Leeds City Council, PO Box 837, Admissions, Leeds, LS1 9PZ.



At the end of their time in primary school, Wigton Moor pupils progress to a wide range of high schools that include: Rossett, Allerton High, Boston Spa, Allerton Grange, Wetherby High, Abbey Grange, Roundhay High, St. Aidans, Heckmondwike and the Grammar School at Leeds.

If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2020 (born between 1 Sep 2008 and 31 August 2009) you will receive a letter from Leeds City Council inviting you to apply.

Your address puts you in the priority catchment area for a particular school and the letter tells you which school this is. It is the school at which your child has a higher priority for admission under the school admission policy, which might be the Leeds City Council Admissions Policy 2019/20 (PDF 61KB) or might be the school's own policy.

We would recommend that you include this school as one of your five preferences, even if it is your fifth preference, although there is no guarantee that you ​will be offered a place there.

Your application needs to be submitted by 31st October 2019.

Offers will go out on 2 March 2020.
