Applications for a Reception Place


How to apply for a September 2024 place:

If you are applying for a reception place for September 2024, all applications are made in advance. Offers are made by the Local Authority on national offer day.

Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 60 places, and this is the number of places the school can admit in Reception in 2024.

You must apply to the local authority who empties your bins. If this is Leeds, go to The website is a composite prospectus for all Leeds schools, and this includes:  

  • all the steps you need to go through to make an application 
  • the key dates 
  • a search tool to see if your home address gives any higher priority for admission to any school(s) 
  • an explanation about how places are offered if there are more applications than spaces (oversubscribed) 
  • the online application portal - apply online and you will be sent your offer by email
  • a summary of each school’s individual admission policy criteria 
  • data about who got a place in the last 3 years - this will help you work out if there is a reasonable chance of your child qualifying for a place 
  • about applying under a specific admission criteria (such as your child being previously looked after). It is important to ensure you submit all supporting evidence by the deadline to show you meet any such criteria
