School Admissions

New Intake Tours

We are so sorry that at present we cannot offer any tours for parents wishing to view the school. We will aim to have a virual tour posted on the website in November.

If you have any questions please email them to headteacher@westleigh-inf.southend.sch.uk and we will respond to you individually.

Admission Process

Children start primary school in the school year in which they reach the age of five.  Children officially start their primary school education when they enter a reception year class.

All children born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2017 will start school in September 2020.  The online admissions forms for the Reception and Year 3 intakes for September 2020 are available between 14th September 2020 and 15th January 2021. The closing date for applications is 15th January 2021.  Parents will be advised of the outcome of their applications on 16th April 2021.  Our current pupil admission number per year group is 120.

It is the responsibility of parents to apply for a school place at the correct times. You will not receive any letters from Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to inform you that you must apply for your child’s school place however, early years settings and general marketing is in place to ensure parents are alerted.

Applications are not treated on a "first come first served" basis and are processed according to the published determined admission arrangements.  We strongly recommend parents to refer to the Admissions Booklet (link below) for further information about the admission process and for information on the school admission criteria.

Admissions to West Leigh are handled by Southend Local Education Authority at www.southend.gov.uk/admissions
