Our Governors may ask to see the following documentation during the application process: 

Birth Certificate for the child being registered.

Recent Utility Bill or Bank Statements showing parent's full name and current home address of where the child is living.

Official document showing child's name living at the registration address which can be one of the following official documents: NHS Medical Card, Child Benefit Statement, Working Tax Credit statement or Child Trust Fund Voucher/Letter.


The closing date for applications is the 15TH JANUARY before your child will commence Reception in the September (the school year that they turn 5 years old).


The School Governors will meet to review all applications and determine allocation of places after the closing date of 15th January. The Governors will try to meet parents' wishes whenever possible. Final decisions cannot be taken until it is known how many places will still be available at the school after the needs of those who clearly satisfy the Governors' conditions have been met.
The Education Authority will write to offer places in the April before your child is due to start in the September (This is the same time as all other schools within the Kirklees Area are informed of places).


Parents wishing to transfer a child to the school after moving into the neighbourhood during the school year, or without changing their address, will need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) returning this to their school of choice.

Please click the link below to access the Kirklees website with link to their ICAF form.



Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent admission appeal panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002. Parents who intend to make an appeal against the Governing Body’s decision to refuse admission must submit a notice of appeal within twenty one days of receiving the refusal letter.  Normally appeal hearings will be held within six weeks of the closing date for receiving the notice of appeal.

Kirklees administer Appeals on behalf of the Governing Body of Lindley CE Infant school.  To submit an appeal, please click https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/admissions/about-admission-appeals.aspx
