Nursery places: Is your child beginning Nursery during 2021/22? 

Your child is entitled to free Nursery education (15 hours per week) from the term after their third birthday – admission is typically in September, January and April each year. If your child is ready to start Nursery, please contact Admissions and complete the online application form. We would be happy to welcome you into Nursery for a visit to see for yourself how wonderful Nursery provision at Victoria Primary Academy is – contact us to arrange a visit.

We also offer 30 hours provision for those families who are eligible for the additional hours. To check your eligibility and for more information, visit the DfE website or contact us and let us help you to secure your child’s place.


Is your child beginning school in September 2022?


If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, they’ll be ready to start school in September 2022.

At Victoria, we take our role very seriously and pride ourselves on welcoming children into our fantastic Foundation Stage setting. We have an excellent track record in settling children quickly so that they are ready to learn, play and have fun with friends. We encourage you to come and visit us so that we can show you what happens in our school, day to day, and answer any questions you may have. You are very welcome to come along and have a tour of our wonderful school. Please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit.

Please have a look at our Academy Prospectus for more information about our school.

You can access information on how to apply for a primary place for your child at Victoria Primary Academy via Leeds City Council Admissions.
