Joining Us At Shire Oak


We are a Voluntary Controlled School therefore admissions to the school are organised through Leeds City Council.  You may contact us directly to find out about available spaces in specific year groups.

Leeds City Council have now determined priority catchment areas to help parents understand where their nearest school is (apart from academies, free schools, voluntary aided schools and any others that are their own admissions authority). Maps denoting the new catchment priority shapes which will apply for admissions into Reception from September 2020 can be found here. Links to maps for individual schools can be found here then by clicking on the individual school and then the link for (school) Primary Admission policy 2022-23.


        The admissions team at Leeds City Council have made a video to show parents how to apply for places in Reception Class.

Should you wish to apply for a place, the information you need is available here in our Admissions Information for 2022 - 2023.


Leeds City Council has determined the 2022/2023 admission arrangements and the 2023/2024 admissions arrangements and set the Leeds LA coordination scheme.As we are a voluntary controlled school we follow the Leeds City Council admission criteria:Our school admissions policies(

We host several Open Mornings throughout the year. Provisionally, our next Open Mornings will be on: 


Thursday 24th November 2022 from 9.15 - 11.15am                                                                                     

Thursday 12th January 2023 from 9.15 - 11.15am

(These are both drop-in sessions).

During the morning our older children will be conducting tours of school and parents from FOSOPS (Friends of Shire Oak Primary School) will be serving refreshments and answering any questions you would like to ask them. We feel that this helps to give a very honest picture of life at our school.

We also offer a virtual open day for for people who can't join us at our daytime event.

If you cannot make it to our Open Morning, but would like to arrange a visit to school on another day, please do get in touch as the headteacher is happy to meet parents and arrange tours of school when you can see the children learning.
