Everyone is welcome here.
KSA Primary is open to everyone. It is a non-selective school – applications are welcome for every child, regardless of their religion, race, gender, physical ability or special education needs.
The school prides itself on being a happy friendly space where everyone can feel comfortable and inspired to learn and grow. We really are one big happy family.
Applying for a place at KSA Primary outside of the initial application for a Reception place
If for example you move to Leeds from another city or county (or even another country), and we are outside of the dates for applying for initial Reception places, or if your child is older, you can contact us directly and we will help you to transfer your child to our school. It’s a relatively easy process and we will give you as much help as we can.
Do we have Waiting Lists?
We are lucky enough to have a brand new building with plenty of room to grow. That means, that we have space to accommodate a lot more children before we need to start thinking about waiting lists. Always get in contact to check for availability and we can talk through the options.
In the unlikely event that we are not able to offer you a place in either Reception or in another year group, you always have the right to appeal the decision. The process for appealing is detailed in our policy which can be found by clicking the button at the bottom of the page.
My child only speaks a little (or no) English…
We’re very comfortable dealing with new children for whom English is not a first language, as well as those who cannot speak any English. The children quickly make friends here and that really helps them to initially settle in whilst the teachers and teaching assistants help them to learn in a new language. We can even make signs and worksheets in other languages whilst your child learns.
Not ready to start?
If you feel that your child is not ready to start school, please contact us and we will work with you to assess the situation, advise on options and put together a plan.
Moving from another school
If your child is moving from another school, we are more than happy for them to come for a tour, meet the children in their class, and to come and spend some time with us. We will try to do everything we can to help make the move feel as easy and comfortable as possible.
We run two dedicated minibuses in the Leeds and Bradford areas. There are usually places available. The cost of transport depends on how far your house is from our school.
Please speak to the School Office for more information.
