Consultation on proposed changes to the school’s age range expansion

The Governing Body of Carr Manor Community School proposes to change the age range from 4-19 to 2-19 years, to create nursery provision within the current Primary Phase building. The non-statutory process and timescales for the expansion are detailed below.

The consultation will run for 3 calendar weeks from Monday 22nd April – Friday 10th May 2024. The documents below provide further details, with the opportunity for you to submit your feedback on the proposed changes.


You can appeal against the decision to refuse your child a place at your preferred school(s). By doing this, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference school. In the meantime, you should accept the place you have been offered by contacting the school directly. This will ensure your child has a place in September and it will not affect your waiting list position or the appeal.

If you wish to appeal for a school in a different local authority, you should contact the relevant council for further details. Please visit www.leeds.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-appeals for further information on appeals.

If you are not offered a place at the school you requested, you will have the right of appeal.

Appeal deadlines
For places starting in September 2024, the deadline to submit an appeal for Year 7 is 28th March 2024 and for Reception is 14th May 2024

Appeals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
These classes are limited to 30 pupils per teacher by law. This means that appeals for these places are less likely to be successful. If our school refuses your child a place because of this limit and you want to appeal, you will need to make an infant class size appeal.
