School admissions

Information about school admissions.

If you are applying for your child to start primary, junior or secondary school for the first time, you can find all the information you need to consider, including national deadlines, online application portal and school admission information for Leeds schools on the Leeds City Council Admissions pages.

We would suggest looking at the primary schools in your local area, including their websites and OFSTED reports. It is also a good idea to contact the schools and ask to speak to the SENCos to discuss whether they think your child’s needs can be meet at their school, as this may help you decide on which schools to name.

If your child is at a school, but you wish to change schools, you’ll need to apply for a school transfer. Find out more about moving schools.

You should also think about how your child might travel to and from school and whether you would be eligible for any help with home to school transport
