Final Offers Day 16th April 2020

Final offers for places in our Reception Class for September 2020 will be made on 16th April 2020.  When you have been offered a place you need to contact school to confirm your acceptance or to let us know if you do not want the place any longer so that we can offer it to a child on our waiting list.  You can  email school on or phone on 0113 8879023 between 8.45am and 3.30pm every weekday.

If you are not happy with the school you have been offered you can ask to be added to the waiting list for any Leeds school (including schools you haven’t previously asked for)  and can appeal against the refusal of a place at a preferenced school. Waiting list forms and appeal forms are available at  

You do not need to take any action on offer day, as you have until 30th  April 2020 to submit a waiting list request and 15th  May 2020 to submit an appeal request.  Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), appeal hearings are currently on hold until we receive further guidance from the Department for Education.

 Please be aware that if you want to refuse your offer:

  • it will be allocated to another child and Leeds Admissions cannot guarantee a place will become available at a closer school to home – you could be left without a Reception place in September;
  • accepting an offer doesn’t impact the chances of being offered a place from the waiting list or increase the chances of success at an appeal hearing;
  • you must confirm this in writing to and will be asked to confirm where you will be educating your child in September.
