Admissions Arrangements

At Warley Town we follow the guidelines set out by Calderdale Council for admissions to school.  Further information regarding admission arrangements can be found on the Calderdale Council website: 




Admissions to Reception in 2024

The deadline for applying for a place for your child for Reception in September 2023 is 15th January 2024.   Applications can be made from 17th November 2023 onwards and need to be completed through the Local Authority's Primary Admissions portal (link above). Further information about this can be found at: Calderdale Primary Admissions.

If you are considering including Warley Town as one of your chosen schools, you are welcome to visit the school to meet with the headteacher and experience first hand the ethos and organisation of the school.  We have dates available from October to December each year.   Please ring the school for further information. 

Calderdale Council inform all parents and carers of the school that their child has been offered on National Offer Day on 16th April 2024. 


Admissions into school at other times

If you want to apply for any school place in Calderdale after the school year has started, you must:

  • Complete and submit an in-year application form.

This normally applies if you:

  • Have moved into the area and do not currently have a school place for your child.
  • Have moved within the area and would like to transfer your child to a closer school.
  • Want to move your child from their current school to another school for any other reason.

In general, the Authority does not encourage transfers between schools for reasons other than a house move. The evidence shows that it is rarely in the best interests of the pupil. This is because of the disruption that is caused to their learning.
