Click APPLY NOW to begin your application process which will be carried out via the Calderdale Council website.

Contact us if you have missed the application deadline –

Set up an account on the Calderdale Council website.

You are required to set up your account before making your application choices. Keep your login information safe for the future as you will need this to find out what school your child has been allocated to.

Choose your top 5 primary schools and order them from your first choice to your last.

We recommend putting 5 schools on the form as this will give you a greater chance of getting the school you want. If you’re accepted to more than one school, you will receive a place at your preferred school – i.e. your first choice.

  • Remember to check that all 5 schools are within your catchment area.

You can view or amend the online application throughout the preferencing period.

Reception places will be made on National Offer Day, 16 April 2024.

If you apply online (via the instructions above) you will receive an email with your child’s offer on National Offer Day. If you apply any other way, you will get your offer via post within a few days after the official offer day.
