Time for school!

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our school website!  

If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, you need to apply for their primary school place before the 15th January 2021

We’ve been making big changes at King's Meadow Academy which we’d love to share with you. As we are not currently permitted to show visitors around the school due to social distancing restrictions, why not book a zoom meeting or telephone appointment with our Head Teacher Mr Cochrane who would be delighted to answer any queries? 

How do I apply?

Wakefield operates a co-ordinated scheme for primary admission arrangements. This means that Wakefield Council administer applications for all schools in the Wakefield and Pontefract area.
