Primary school places are offered on 19 April 2022 (offer day). If you applied through the online application portal, Leeds City Council will email you with your child’s offer. They will send the email during the working day. If you applied in any other way, you’ll receive an offer letter to your registered home address (a few days after offer day).

If you are interested in applying for a place at Park Spring please call the school office on 0113 2552526 or email office@parkspringprimary.co.uk and we will be able to arrange a tour with one of our Senior Leaders.

Unfortunately we will not be holding an open evening this year. Information can be found on our website and we will be happy to answer any questions via telephone, email or on your tour.

Applying for Nursery Places

Park Spring Primary School have 52 nursery places available each year. You can register your child on our waiting list as soon as your child is born and children will be eligible to commence our nursery the half term after their third birthday.

All children are eligible for 15 hours free nursery education per week the term after they have turned 3.

To register your child for a nursery place at Park Spring, please contact the School Office. Parents can make a preference for beginning of the week (Monday and Tuesday 9.15 – 3.30 and Wednesday morning 9.15 – 11.45) or end of the week sessions (Wednesday afternoon 1 – 3.30 and Thursday and Friday 9.15 – 3.30). We try our very best to accommodate your first preference however we, unfortunately, cannot guarantee that you will get your first choice of session as we take the children in birth order and sometimes the sessions do fill up.

If all sessions are full at the time your child becomes eligible to start our Nursery, children will have to wait until September before they are able to commence their sessions.

You will be contacted by our Nursery Team nearer to your child’s birthday, to arrange a mutually convenient time for a home visit to be carried out and to discuss a suitable transition for your child into nursery.

Should you wish to visit our school for a tour or request an information booklet, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Admission for Pupils with SEND

At Park Spring Primary, the admissions criteria do not discriminate against any students with SEND in line with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2015).

We will contact a child’s previous education setting prior to admission of students in order to establish any additional needs a
student might have.

Steps taken are:
• Our Inclusion Team will make contact with previous settings to collect data on future students.
• Vulnerable students are identified in order to provide additional transition support to Park Spring Primary.
• The DSL will gather information on students with child protection issues.

• The SENCO liaises with previous schools in order to identify students on the SEN register who will need additional support at Park Spring Primary.
• The SENCO obtains any annual review of pupils with Educational, Health and Care plans where possible.
• Transitional notes are created for all pupils. Pupil profiles of students with SEND are created to inform staff of need and recommended support.
