Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!


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. 

The online application form will be available to use from 1 November 2019 for applications to start reception class in September 2020.​​​

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.
