“Please note: we have applied for a variation to our September 2021  admission arrangements in respect of the over-subscription criteria relating to attendance at worship whilst places of worship have been closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The requested change would make it clear that the attendance requirements will be disapplied for periods during which the relevant place of worship is closed and no alternative premises have been available for public worship. We are anticipating that this variation request will be approved shortly and will upload the revised policy here as soon as we receive confirmation of approval.”


Do you have a child due to start school in September 2021?

The application process is open until 15 January 2021.

Apply by visiting www.leeds.gov.uk/apply – even if you have a child at school already. (Make sure you include sibling information on your application.)

Find information about schools, previous years’ allocation data, catchment maps and links to school admissions.

Leeds City Council cannot hold face-to-face drop-in sessions this year and so they are holding Facebook question and answers sessions, to help with the application process, on :

Thursday 03 December 2020, 6pm to 7pm

Tuesday 05 January 2021, 4pm to 5pm

Wednesday 13 January 2021, 2pm to 3pm

When you apply for a school, you should use all five preferences.

Any supplementary information needs to be provided by the closing date (this applies if a child is previously looked after, is seeking admission under exceptional needs, or if a family wish to apply for their child to be admitted out of chronological age group).

Make sure you use your child’s actual address.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, please contact the Admissions Team at Leeds City Council on 0113 222 4414 or by email: startingprimary@leeds.gov.uk
