Open Days for September 2023 Admission
If you are interested in your child joining Leigh Primary School in September 2023 then we have two dates set for parents and carers to view the school. Please can you email your intent to attend at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01732 832660. Our two Open Days are:
- Wednesday 19th October at 9.30 am
- Tuesday 8th November at 1.30 pm
If these days are not convenient then please do let us know and we will arrange a mutually convenient time. We welcome not only yourselves but also your child/ren on these open days so they can view their potential new school. During Open Days the headteacher will talk about the provision at Leigh Primary School; you will have the opportunity to talk to current parents of the school and governors as well as have a tour conducted by our Year 6 pupils.
The Application Process
You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at a particular school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once. You can apply online or by post. The application process will open on the 4th November 2022 and you will have until the 16th January 2023 to make your application.
