Apply for a Primary School Place (current Nursery Children)
Children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 are due to start primary school in September 2022. Leeds City Council will write to you to request that you apply online for a school place for your child. Please be aware that just because your child attends our nursery currently, or has a brother or sister in school, does NOT mean that they will automatically be given a place in our reception class, you must apply.
Demand for Reception places in Leeds and in particular for Ingram Road is extremely high at the moment, therefore it is advisable that you complete your application as soon as possible.
The online application form will be available to use from 1 November 2021 for applications to start reception class in September 2022.
You must submit an application even if you would like a place at your priority catchment school or your child has a sibling in school.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2022 you will receive a letter inviting you to apply before 1 November 2021.
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 admission policy, (the Leeds Primary Admissions Policy 2021/22).
We recommend 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 there.
You can apply from 1 November 2021. The deadline to apply is 15 January 2022.
Applications submitted after the deadline
We send out letters reminding parents to apply at the end of October. You can still apply if you do not get a letter.
We recommend choosing five schools to give your child the best chance of getting a place at a school you prefer.
Going to a school's nursery does not guarantee your child a place at that school.
We offer primary school places on 19 April 2022 (offer day). If you applied through our online application portal we'll email you with your child's offer. We'll send the email during the working day.
If you applied in any other way, you'll receive an offer letter to your registered home address (a few days after offer day).
