Admission to Reception

Farsley Springbank Primary School is a two form entry primary school so we admit 60 Reception children into the school each academic year.  As a community/maintained school we follow the Leeds City Council admissions policy.  All school places for Reception are allocated by Leeds City Council according to Leeds Admissions Policy.

Further details about our school including our catchment area and how places were offered in previous years can be found on the Leeds City Council website.

Information for prospective parents

Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic, we are unable to offer tours and visits to the school for prospective parents. 


We have created a film 'All about Farsley Springbank' which we hope will give prospective parents a sense of our school.  There is also a short film called 'A day in the life of Reception'.  Click on the link below to watch both films.

In addition to the films, we would like to offer prospective parents an opportunity to meet the Headteacher, through a virtual meeting.  If you would like to join one of the virtual meetings, please contact the school office on 0113 2558719 to book a place.

In Year Transfers

All other admissions are referred to as In-Year Transfers.  All Leeds schools handle their own in-year applications for school places.


Step 1

Once you have decided on your preferred school/s, complete the 'In Year Common Preference Form' and return it directly to the school/s.

Step 2

Schools will write back to you to inform you whether they can offer a place.  If a school is unable to offer a place, the Admissions Team will write to you to advise of the schools in your area and any vacancies at these schools.


Please note:

Where a family has moved into the area, once a place has been offered, the child can usually start as soon as possible.

Where no house move has taken place and a child is transferring to us from a neighbouring school, they would normally start at the beginning of a term.
