Entry into Reception Class September 2019
Admission arrangements for children entering school in Reception are dealt with by Children Leeds and this information can be found in their composite prospectus which is published on their website. Click here for access. Children Leeds Pupil Admissions Department.
We have one intake each year, at the start of the Autumn Term. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday. Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school or to visit on an Open Day.
Parents are usually asked to complete preference forms in the Autumn of the year before the child starts school. Places are allocated in the late Spring / early Summer Term – we have a maximum intake of 30 children. Following this stage, some parents choose to appeal if their choices have not been met.
Once we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to a Welcome Meeting with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have.
This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. Soon after, children are visited in their nursery setting and invited to spend time in the Reception class as part of our ‘Jump Up’ days. At the start of September, just before starting school, each parent has a one-to-one meeting with our Reception class staff.
Parents and carers have until the 15th January 2019 to complete their applications for a Reception place for September 2019 and should apply using the online system. They will be informed of their school offer via email on national offer day, Tuesday 16th April 2019.
