Children are normally admitted to Reception class in September of the school year in which they will be five. Children attending our Nursery have opportunities to visit Reception in the last term to become familiar with the layout and staff.

Children are admitted to Nursery part-time as soon after the age of three as a place becomes available. Parents are welcome to look around school. Please telephone school on 336 8350 if you have any questions.

Leeds have produced a helpful video about applying for your child to start primary school for the first time. You can find it here

The number of places at our school in Reception for September 2024 may be reduced to 60.  It is currently set as 90 places but Leeds City Council who are Moor Allerton Hall Primary School’s admission authority have given notice they intend to applying to the School Adjudicator for a variation to reduce the Published Admission Number to 60 places.  The School Adjudicator must approve thus request before it can take effect.
