Manor Wood Primary School

Nursery Places

School Nursery Admissions


Please read the following information carefully as section clarifies our admissions procedures.

Start dates for nursery are potentially September/January/April of any year and dependent upon availability of places.  We have 78 places and are frequently oversubscribed. Therefore, we are unable to offer places to all the families who apply.

Offers of a nursery place will always be made in writing.


If we are oversubscribed, we allocate children according to the following priorities:


  1. If they are a sibling of a child / children in our school
  2. Children who live in our local area
  3. Children who are likely to able be admitted by the Local Authority to our Reception
  4. Children who use our pre-school provision


Please note that attending our Nursery does not guarantee you a place in our school unless you have older children already attending Manor Wood Primary.  Admissions to Primary School in the September following your child’s 4th birthday is governed by Leeds City Council Children’s Services and not school. You therefore need to apply for a place in Reception through the local authority.




15 hour, 3 year old entitlement is offered over 2 weeks with children attending 3 full days 1 week (18 hours) and 2 full days the next week (12 hours).


If you require extended care beyond fifteen hours during the school day, then you can contact the school office for more details. Please wait for your official nursery place to be sent to you before enquiring about Extended Care.




We can offer a certain amount of 30 hour places to those families who have an eligibility code. We only offer this over 5 school days, term time only.

We are no longer able to split the 30 hours with any other provider and child care before and after school will not be included as part of the funded hours.

Child care from 7.30am-9am and from 3pm-6pm will be available if there are places and will be chargeable.

Information regarding prices and times of wrap around sessions can be obtained from Manor Wood Out of School Club provision.


The club, which accommodates children across the whole of school is extremely popular and often over-subscribed; therefore, you need to make enquiries well in advance if you would like a place. We also run sessions during certain school holidays and Training Days.
