Here are some of the questions we most frequently get asked:
What are your specialisms?
We have always been very keen on science and we’ve expanded that with a huge investment in digital technology equipment to make sure our children receive a great foundation to their IT and computing knowledge. So, whether your child is in Reception or Year 6, we have the equipment to engage and inspire them!
As a School, we are proud to promote science to the highest level. Exploring and inquiring are skills which children are taught and reinforced throughout their time here.
The Crest Award program is delivered throughout the School, where all children are taught further scientific skills additionally to the curriculum. At every opportunity, the children are given the experience to partake in science beyond the classroom, through the use of trips and visitors.
Are you a faith school?
Short answer: no, we’re not. We were developed by a group of like-minded individuals from the Leeds Sikh Community so people often get us confused with a faith school.
Our ethos is based on Sikh principles of recognising the potential in everyone and supporting them to achieve their very best. We’re an inclusive school where everyone is very much welcomes into the family.
Do you have school transport?
There are two minibuses operated by private dedicated drivers. One picks up/drops off at locations around Leeds, the other in and around Bradford.
Cost per child depends on the distance of your house from the school. Fees are paid in full at the beginning of the academic year or, in special circumstances, by agreed monthly installments.
For further details, please speak to the School Office who will put you in touch with the relevant driver.
Do you run a Breakfast Club and After School Care?
We have both! Breakfast Club runs from 8.00am and After School Care finishes at 6.00pm. We also have many after school clubs running which help to extend the school day for working parents.
Are your school meals vegetarian?
We cook high quality hot meals on site which are available to everyone – including the staff! Meals are vegetarian as we believe in promoting a healthy lifestyle. However, ‘vegetarian’ doesn’t mean they’re not really tasty and filling.
Should parents wish to provide their child with a meat option as a packed lunch they are welcome to do so.
Please note: We do not allow nuts on site due to severe allergies.
Do you have a nursery for my youngest child?
We hope to have our two plus provision open by September 2020. You can register your interest on the dedicated page.
What faiths are taught at school?
We follow the same religious curriculum as other Leeds schools so children get a wide understanding of a variety of different faiths. Our school is made up of many different faith groups so it is important to us that we recognise and understand them and each other.
Can I have another copy please?
If a letter didn’t quite make it home or you would like an additional copy, just ask at Reception and we’ll sort you another one. Likewise, if you would like a printed version of anything on the website then just ask.
If you have problems reading or understanding anything that we have provided, give us a call or speak to the School Office and we will find someone who can help you.
How do I sign my child up for Primley Wood Primary?
Please refer to our Admissions Page. If you would like a hard copy of the application form please visit the School Office. If you would like to visit the school and talk to one of the Senior Leadership Team or the teachers, then please contact the school and we’ll arrange a date and time.
My child can’t speak much/any English – is that a problem?
Not at all. As well as the teachers being able to support your child’s learning, the children are so friendly that we find that all new starters have fitted in by break time and are happily getting on with things.
Plus, our diverse range of pupils, staff and wider community friends means that we usually have someone who can help you, your children and your wider family.
