Children are eligible to start our Nursery the term after they turn 3 years old. If you would like to apply for a Nursery place, please complete the online application form and it will automatically be sent to the school admin team.
Please email email@example.com to inform us that you have completed the form.
Children are admitted at the beginning of the school year (September) in which they will have their 5th birthday.
If you are applying for a place in Reception, you must apply through Leeds City Council between 1 November and 15 January prior to your child starting school.
Alwoodley Primary School has pupils from 3 to 11 years (Nursery to Year 6). Admission to Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception.
We are a Community school and the admission authority is Leeds City Council, who sets our admission policy every year.
