Red Kite Learning Trust

For Parents/Carers


Choosing the Primary School for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make and we want to help you make the right choice for your child.

Templenewsam Halton Primary School is a motivated, safe and respectful place to learn and play.  We are a caring and friendly family team who want the very best for your child’s education.

We hope you will join us and become part of our family so that we can work together to provide the very best start for your children.

In the sections below, we have advice on how to apply for In-year applications, a Reception place and a Nursery place and also whole school admissions. 

How to apply 

Parents and carers may apply at any time for an in-year school place.  Application forms are provided and processed by Leeds City Council (tel. 0113 222 4414). 

You can apply for a place online using the local authority in-year application form at: 

Before you move schools (  

If you have moved to a new house, please upload evidence of the move with the online application. 

Parents and carers will be notified in writing by the school of its decision. This will be within 15 school days of your in-year application being received.  

If the school is unable to offer a place, your child’s name will automatically be added to the school’s waiting list, which will be kept open until the end of the school year in July 2024. Where a place becomes available, this will be offered from the waiting list, based on the oversubscription criteria within the school’s admissions policy.

In-year applications (1 September 2023 to 31 August 2024) 

If you would like to change schools, or if you are moving into the area for example, you can apply for a school transfer, by making an in-year application. 

An in-year application is for the admission of a child to Reception / Y6 if submitted on or after the first day of the first school term of the admission year; or it is for the admission of a child to any other age group at any time. 

Red Kite Learning Trust and its Leeds schools are part of the Leeds City Council centralised in-year admissions scheme.

Please contact Leeds City Council for further information regarding this and the application procedure on 0113 2224414.

If your in-year application is unsuccessful, you will have the right of appeal against the school’s decision.  

Appeals are arranged by Leeds City Council and you can find the appeal form and information at:

School appeals (     

The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and the decision is legally binding.  Appeals against a decision for an in-year application can be submitted at any time during the school year.
