Admission arrangements for children entering school in Reception are dealt with by your own local authority (the council where you pay your council tax). Applications for places in Reception for Leeds residents in September should be made via Leeds City Council Admissions Team.”

Admissions arrangements for all Leeds primary schools can be found in their composite prospectus which is published on their website.
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they should start primary school in September 2020 and you will need to make an application online.

Invitation to apply letters
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2021 you will receive a letter inviting you to apply before 1 November 2020.

Your address puts you in the priority catchment area for a particular school and the letter tells you which school this is. It is the school at which your child has a higher priority for admission under the school’s admission policy.

It is recommended that you include this school as one of your five preferences, even if it is your fifth preference, although there is no guarantee that you will be offered a place.

After completing your online application, you will receive an email confirming it has been received. If you don’t receive an email your
application has not been completed properly. You should log back in and make sure the form is fully completed.

If you live outside Leeds and want your child to go to a school in Leeds, you must apply to your own local authority and they will inform us of your request.

The online application form will be available to use from 1 November 2019 for applications to start reception class in September 2020.
