Admission Arrangements

September 2020 reception New Starters

If your child has been offered a place at Great Preston C of E Primary School, please could we ask that you email to confirm your acceptance of this place at your earliest convenience? We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school in September and we will be contacting all families via email to share transition information over the coming weeks.

Should your child not have been offered a place at your preferred school, you can ask to be added to the waiting list for any Leeds school (including schools they 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 have until 30 April to submit a waiting list request and until 15 May to submit an appeal requests. Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), appeal hearings are on hold until we receive further guidance from the Department for Education.

If you are considering refusing your offer please note:

  • if you turn down a place, it will be allocated to another child and we 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
  • any family who refuses an offer must confirm this in writing to and will be asked to confirm where they will be educating their child in September.
