Reception Admissions

The governors intend to have one intake of 60 Reception pupils in September 2024. All admissions to Reception are organised through the Leeds Admissions Unit, Leeds City Council. If your child was born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 inclusive you are eligible to apply for a Reception place for September 2024.


How to apply for a September 2024 place

If you are applying for a Reception place for September 2024, all applications are made in advance. Offers are made by local authorities on national offer day. 

You must apply to the local authority who empties your bins. If this is Leeds, go to The local authority website is a composite prospectus for all Leeds schools and includes information about:  

  • all of the steps you need to go through to make an application
  • the key dates
  • a search tool to see if your home address gives any higher priority for admission to any school(s)
  • an explanation about how places are offered if there are more applications than spaces (oversubscribed)
  • the online application portal - apply online and you’ll be sent your offer by email
  • a summary of each school’s individual admission policy criteria
  • data about who got a place in the last 3 years - this will help you work out if there is a reasonable chance of your child qualifying for a place.
  • Information about applying under a specific admission criteria (such as your child being previously looked after). It is really important to ensure you submit all supporting evidence by the deadline to show you meet any such criteria.

You can also watch the Leeds City Council school admissions video for more information. 

The council’s social media pages will also tell you about any Q&A sessions where you can ask questions.

You can also see information about our school, including previous admission data, on our school page on the Leeds City Council’s website Ninelands Primary School Admissions data.
