If you would like your child to attend Outwoods Edge Primary School, please see full details of our admissions arrangements below. The school is  participating in the Local Authority's co-ordinated admissions scheme for the Academic Years 2022-23, 2023-24, and 2024-25 which engages Leicestershire County Council to process admissions applications on our behalf.

Applications need to be made to Leicestershire County Council School Admissions Service on the Leicestershire County Council website, where further information about the admissions process can also be found.

It is important to point out that places are allocated in accordance with the school's own Admission Policy. The school policy has a cap placed on numbers allowing only sixty children in each cohort.

If you are applying for a place in our 4+ unit, please note that the closing date for applications is 15th January of the year your child is due to start school. We have tours of the school in the Autumn term ahead of the application, if you are interested in registering for a tour please contact the school office.

If your child has been refused a school place, you can appeal.

If you have applied as part of the normal round of first-time admissions (for children aged 4), and have been refused a school place, you will be automatically placed on the school’s oversubscription (waiting) list.  The school does not maintain a waiting list for other age groups.

The position your child will appear on the Oversubscription List will depend on how closely they meet the school’s admissions priority criteria – see our admissions policy above for more details.

If a place becomes available, and your child is at the top of the list, you will be contacted automatically to offer you the place.

Our  OSL is maintained by Leicestershire County Council’s School Admissions Service. We also use their appeals service.  More information about how to make an appeal can be found at the following web address:

There is a strict timetable for the submission and hearing of appeals.  In summary, if you have applied on time for a place in reception next year, you will hear if you have been successful in mid-April.  Any appeals should be lodged with Leicestershire County Council according to this timetable.  If you are applying for a transfer from another school and your application is unsuccessful, you have 20 school days to lodge an appeal.  Full details can be found here:
