Reception Welcome Meeting 

Thank you to all the parents and carers that attended our first Reception welcome meeting. If you were not able to attend or just want to watch the presentation again with your child then please feel free.

Due to the amount of information shared at this first meeting, this video also provides the narration by Mrs Toth who led the meeting. Information for other meetings will be provided to you through Parentmail through digital copies of the presentation slides.

We look forward to welcoming you all in the new academic year.

Applying for a place at the academy

West St Leonards Primary Academy welcomes all applications for prospective new students. Most students join at the start of Reception, during the Admissions Round.

If you would like to apply for your child to join us outside of the Admissions Round, you can make an In-year Application. Details of both can be found on this page.
