Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Copyright Priesthorpe Primary (3)Admissions and parental choice –Nursery

We maintain a waiting list for admission to our Nursery.  We admit children to Nursery over the year; the term after the children turn 3.  We currently operate morning nursery places only. Children attending our nursery are not guaranteed a place in the reception class.  A separate application must be made to the local authority who are responsible for allocating places at our school. We welcome visits from interested parents and families at any point throughout the year.

Arrangements for children starting school

Beckfoot Priestthorpe Primary School is a community school and we admit up to 30 children into reception every September.  We only have one intake each year so children usually start school full time in the September of the year they turn five.

Each year, all new reception parents are invited to a meeting where relevant information is shared about our school. Visits from parents in other year groups considering a transfer to the school can be made at any time by contacting the Headteacher.

If you decide to move your child then you will need to contact the admissions team at the local authority to apply for a school place. Their telephone number is 01274 439200.
