Admissions

As you may be aware, all children born between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013 are able to take up a full time place to start at a Primary School from August 2017.

Hazel Community Primary School admits pupils in accordance with Leicester City Council Children and Young People’s Services Admissions Policy.

Only Leicester City Council Children and Young People’s Services can confirm places to pupils whether the child lives in the priority area for the school or otherwise and regardless of whether the child has attended Nursery at the school.

Places will be allocated up to the Planned Admission Limit, which from September 2015 in the case of Hazel Community Primary School is 60 for all years from Reception to Year 6.

The admission limits have been increased in agreement with Leicester City Council to offer additional school places in the city.

If you are resident in Leicester City, full information about how to apply and details of schools can be found on our website at www.leicester.gov.uk/admissions. We recommend that you take the time to read our Primary School guide as this will fully explain the admissions process including the option of taking a part time place or deferring entry to school until later in the academic year. If you live outside of Leicester City, you will need to apply to the authority you pay your council tax to.

Please note that you must apply by no later than the closing date of 15th January 2017. If you apply after this date, your application will be late and you may lose out on your choice of Primary School.

If you would like help in completing your online application, we are running help sessions for parents. Details of each session are on the website at www.leicester.gov.uk/admissions. You can attend any session and staff will be happy to help you. Alternatively, you can get help at any Leicester City Customer Service Centre, Library or Community Centre.

If you have any queries regarding this letter please contact the Customer Service Centre on (0116) 4541009 (Option 1)

Visits to the school are welcome by prior appointment. Do not hesitate to contact us.

Local Nursery Providers

If you child’s birthday is between 01/09/2013 – 31/08/2014, we do not provide nursery place for 3 year olds at Hazel. This is because all our available spaces are being offered to the full time reception children, as there are not enough places for these children in the city.

Your child is still eligible for up to 15 hours per week. You can take up this entitlement at any other provider. Here is a list of local nursery providers.
