How to apply for a Reception Place for your child:

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, they should start primary school in September 2022 and you will need to make an application for your preferred primary school

If your child has reached School age, you will apply for their Reception place through your Local Authority (for example Leeds City Council.) For places in any other year groups, please contact the School directly.

Key Dates

Leeds City Council will write to all eligible households in October and Parent/Carers will be able to apply on-line from 1st November 2021.
The deadline for applications is 15th January 2022. It is strongly recommended that you choose five schools to get the best chance of getting a school that you prefer.

Please note that even if your child attends a school nursery you will still need to apply for a school place. In addition, if you have older children currently attending Primley Wood Primary School you must also apply for a place.


You will find out which school you have been offered on 19th April 2022, this is known as National Offer Day and is the same across the country. You will be sent an email if you applied online and if you use a paper application form you will receive an offer letter in the post.

If you’re moving house before 12th February 2022, see website for more details https://www.leeds.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/apply-for-a-primary-school.

For any help when making your application, you can contact Leeds City Council on 0113 222 4414 or by emailing them at startingprimary@leeds.gov.uk.
