School Admissions - How do I apply?
Children Starting School
Parents have the right to apply for a place at any school in Leeds, or the surrounding district, regardless of their address. Admissions are organised centrally by Leeds City Council.
The Local Authority (LA) is the admission authority for all mainsteam community and voluntary controlled schools and will determine the admission policy arrangements.
Admission to the school is in accordance with the criteria laid down in the Education Leeds Admissions to Primary Schools Booklet. This gives priority to children with special educational needs, those with siblings already attending the school and children living within the schools catchment area. Please view the admissions Policy below for more details,
Parents will receive information about all Leeds primary schools and a preference form in the October prior to the year their child is due to start school. Parents are encouraged to apply for their child's school on line.
Further information about admissions can be found by phoning the Admissions Team on 0113 224 4414 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Information is also available from Leeds City Council Admissions Team where you can download the booklet and apply on-line.
Parents considering applying to Shadwell should make an appointment for one of our open days which are typically in the Autumn term where you will have the opportunity to meet the Head Teacher and find out more about the school. Please look out for the dates which will be advertised on the website and contact the school to make an appointment.
