In-Year Admissions

Join Us Mid-Year

The school will comply with all relevant provisions of the Department for Education’s School Admissions Code of Practice 2014 (‘the Admissions Code’), the School Admission Appeals Code of Practice 2012 (‘the Appeals Code’) and the law on admissions. The school will consult on its admission arrangements as may be required and/ or necessary.

To make an ‘in-year’ application to the school for a year group that has already started, parents or carers need to complete Leagrave Primary School’s in-year application form.

Children in a class at Leagrave Primary School

Defined Intake Periods

Leagrave Primary School has three intake periods during each academic year, as follows:

Autumn TermFirst 3 school weeks in September
Spring TermFirst 2 school weeks in January
Summer TermFirst school week in June

However, where necessary – and subject to the availability of places – the school will endeavour to allocate places to the following children outside of its three defined intake periods:

  • Looked after children, previously looked after children or pupils with an EHC plan.
  • Pupils without a school place who have moved into Luton from outside of the borough or from abroad.
  • Pupils who are already in a school within Luton and who are wishing to transfer to Leagrave Primary School; if their home address is further than 2 miles from their current school and it would not be reasonable for them to remain at the current school because of distance.
  • All other applications will be looked at on an individual basis.
