At Leys Primary School, we welcome all parents who would like a tour of the school and a discussion about admission with the SLT Admissions Lead or Mrs Ainsworth the Office Manager.
Information concerning admission to LBBD primary schools can be found via the following link:
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Is your child due to start school in September 2024?
If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020, they can start school in September, and you should have applied for their place by Sunday 14 January 2024.
If you missed the memo, don’t panic, there is still time and you can apply by visiting www.lbbd.gov.uk/school-admissions.
It’s important to know that getting your child a place at school is not an automatic process, so you still have to apply, even if they are already at a school nursery or they have a brother or sister at that school.
If you need to apply, head to the school admissions page now.
You can also check out this video to help you through the process.

Children are usually admitted to Nursery shortly after their third birthday unless there is a waiting list due to nursery numbers being full.
The nursery will contact parents/guardians when a place is available in order to initiate transition and induction procedures. A list of children requiring a nursery place is kept by our office manager, Mrs Ainsworth, and so parents should give names to the school office staff at the earliest opportunity to ensure a place is allocated.
The current nursery capacity is for 26 children and children attend for half a day, either mornings or afternoons.
Miss Nicola Fagan is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Lead Practitioner; Assistant Headteacher and our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo). Any specific requests about curriculum for this key stage can be answered by her, via contacting the school office in the first instance.
