Places in our Nursery are allocated according to availability at the beginning of the term in which a child turns three using the criteria in our admissions policies. If places are still available, rising threes will be offered a place in the term in which they are three. Parents wishing their child to attend our nursery should give their name and contact details to the school office or nursery teacher as early as possible before the child turns three. If you have recently moved into the area and require a place in nursery please contact the school office to enquire about the availability of places.
Requests for places in Reception should be made directly to Leeds City Council admissions department, the number for admissions is 0113 222 4414. Parents are required to fill in a preference form online. Parents will be informed about how to complete this form via post. This is sent out the November before their child is due to start Reception. The school office can help you with this process. Leeds City Council will inform parents about which school their child has been given a Reception place in via email at the beginning of the Summer term.
Admissions at all other times will be dealt with by our school office. If you are new to the area or are looking to transfer from another school please contact the school office to enquire about available places.
At whatever stage your child starts school with us here at Clapgate we will ensure they settle in as quickly and happily as possible. You will be contacted in good time prior to your child’s start date and arrangements will be made for you and your child to visit to the school, have a meeting with the head and class teacher and for all relevant information to be passed onto you.
