Leeds City Council’s admissions team has been in discussion with the head teacher and governors at Ashfield Primary School who have agreed to make additional places available for this September’s intake.
Parents living in Otley who were offered a place outside of the town when one of their three preferences for a primary school couldn’t be met, are being advised to contact Ashfield Primary School, as more places have now been secured.
The admissions team has written to the parents and carers who were affected to advise them to contact the school to arrange a visit.
Sarah Sinclair, chief officer at Leeds City Council’s children’s services said:
“Our admissions team have worked hard to find a solution so these children can attend a school in their local area. We hope parents will take up this opportunity.”
The council’s admissions team recommend that parents and carers always include their nearest school as one of their preferences and to make sure they use all three preferences to get the best chance of being offered a preferred school.
