'Growing Together'


When can my child start school?




Pupils are admitted into the reception class in the year in which they have their 5th birthday.  They are admitted in the September only. 

For children due to start reception class next September, you will receive a letter from Leeds City Council inviting you to apply for a place in the second half of the Autumn Term just before Christmas when online applications open. 


For each primary or infant school there is a planned admission limit, which for Ingram Road Primary School is 45.  This means that the maximum number of pupils that can be admitted to the school in any year is 45.  If the school becomes oversubscribed, priority for places is determined according to the following criteria, in the order shown:


  • The child lives in the catchments area and has siblings in the school.

  • The child lives in the catchments area.

  • The child lives outside the catchments area and has siblings in the school.

  • Any other children.

How to apply for a school place



We accept names for the Nursery class registration list at anytime, please call in to the main school office to complete a registration form. The children are admitted to the nursery after their 3rd birthday, but we can never guarantee a place. Parents/carers will be notified when a place is available for their child. Staff will visit you and your child at home and then you will both be invited in to ‘Stay and Play’ for a session. Children will be offered either a morning or afternoon place (a total of 15 hours per week) but we can offer flexible places on request. You may be eligible for 30 hours Government Funded Provision.
