Admissions to Leagrave Primary School

In order for their child to be admitted to the Reception year at Leagrave Primary School in September 2024, parents or carers must complete Luton Council’s common application form by 15th January 2024. Applications received after the closing date will not be considered in the initial allocation of places, except in very exceptional circumstances. Where parents or carers have submitted an application form before the closing date, but then seek to change their preference after the closing date, this late expression of preference will be treated as a late application and will not be considered in the initial allocation of places.

Leagrave Primary School operates an equal preference system; applications will be considered according to the set admissions criteria regardless of any indicated preference ranking.

Decision letters will be sent to parents or carers on 16th April 2024 by Luton Council’s Admissions Team on behalf of the school’s Governing Board.

Admission Number

Leagrave Primary School has a pupil admission number of 60 pupils in its September 2024 reception year intake.
