Welcome to St. Leonard's CofE School Admissions page.
We know that choosing a school for your child is a very important decision. Thank you for your interest in your family becoming part of the St. Leonard's community. We are hugely proud of our school and would love to show you all that makes it special. Please have a look at our website and twitter feed. We would be delighted to welcome you into school so parents are highly encouraged to make an appointment to visit for a tour. Please contact our school office staff who will be able to help with questions and queries.
Children enter school, in Reception Class, (Blackbirds) in the September of the school year in which they are five.
Parents should apply on-line in the autumn term before the child is due to start school.
By the following April, parents will be informed as to whether or not they have been successful in their request for a place.
A Diocesan Supplementary Information form should be completed by parents who wish their application to be considered against the faith criteria (as outlined in the full policy). This form is available to view and download on this page. The supplementary form should be returned to school.
Siblings of children who have moved from another school will be offered a place if there are places in the required age groups.
Full details of the admission arrangements for September 2023 and the Diocesan Supplementary Information Form can be viewed and downloaded below,.
Applications for admission to the school for September 2023 should be made on-line at www.lancashire.gov.uk (search for School Admissions) between 1st September 2022 and 15th January 2023. It is not normally possible to change the order of your preferences for schools after the closing date.
