The 1998 Education Act gives parents freedom of choice of school providing that places are available. All schools have a catchment area and children living within that area are given preference in deciding admissions to the school.

Before your child starts at Lawefield Primary School, you should fill in an Admission Form (see the link below) which is checked when a place is given. You may visit the school prior to admission by arrangement with the Headteacher.

Admissions to the school are controlled by Wakefield Local Authority (the Education Committee of the District Council). At this school, up to 30 pupils can be admitted in the school year beginning each September. This is the admission limit set by the Authority.

Please see the link below for the latest Wakefield Authority Admissions Policy and deadlines as well as access to their online application form and other useful information:
