Admissions for entry into Nursery
Our School Business Manager makes all offers of nursery places on behalf of the school Headteacher and the Governing Board. If you wish your child to start at our Nursery you should complete an admissions form and return to the school office as soon as possible. Children are allocated according to availability after a child's third birthday. The selection process follows a line of procedure:
- Children in public care or fostered under an arrangement made by the local authority.
- Pupils without a statement but who have Special Educational Needs, or with exceptional medical or mobility needs, that can only be met at a specific school.
Children with older brothers or sisters who will be at school at the start of the academic year and are living at the same address. This priority will not apply where the older sibling joined the sixth form from a different school.
We will give priority to parents who put their nearest school. If we have more applications than there are places, we will offer places first to children living nearest to the school (measured in a straight line).
We will give priority to parents who choose a Leeds school, which is not the one nearest to their home address. If we have more applications than there are places, we will offer places first to children living nearest to the school (measured in a straight line).
If you have recently moved into the area and wish your child to attend our nursery, admissions will be made based on availability.

Admissions for entry into Reception
September admissions into Reception are organised wholly by the admissions team at Leeds City Council. The school does not have any control over these decisions.

Admissions at all other times into any year group will be carried out by the school office team and decisions will be made based on spaces available.
At whatever stage your child starts school with us we will ensure they settle in as quickly and happily as possible. Before your child starts with us, you will be invited in to have a meeting with the Headteacher, meet your new teacher and classroom, have a tour around the premises and receive all the relevant information you will require. We will aim to make this as smooth a transition as possible for you and your child. Please follow the link to admissions leeds: Our school admissions policies (leeds.gov.uk)
