The table shows you a timetable of key times in the school year. Please use it as a guide.
Applications for primary school open on 1 November if your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012. You need to apply by 15 January 2016. They will then start school in September 2016.
If you applied online keep your acknowledgement email as proof. If you did not receive an acknowledgement email within 24 hours your application was not completed successfully and you need to apply again.
If you applied by post, we recommend that you keep a copy of your form. If you handed it in to a school, we recommend that you keep a receipt.
Primary school place offers are emailed to parents and carers on 16 April and postal offers are sent by second class post.
Please note that by law children must start school no later than the beginning of the school term after their fifth birthday. In Leeds, children normally start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they have their fifth birthday.
Your nearest school is not necessarily the closest school to your home address. Not all schools have a distance priority/criteria in their policies. Please check the schools Admissions Policy for information before you make a decision. If you would like confirmation of the nearest school to your home address please contact us.
