Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Reception Admissions

Beckfoot Allerton Primary School is a co-educational comprehensive primary school for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years (children in Nursery start when they turn 3). The admission number, agreed with the Local Education Authority, is 60 per year group. We hold Open Days where you can come and see our school prior to your child starting in September. 

At the present time there are 412 children on roll.

Admissions & Parental Choice - Nursery

We maintain a waiting list for admission to our Nursery. We admit 60 children each September into Nursery. We offer 15 hours per week and this can be taken as either morning sessions, afternoon sessions, Monday and Tuesday all day and Wednesday morning or Wednesday afternoon and Thursday and Friday all day.  We offer 30 hours fully funded places.  .

Children attending our nursery are not guaranteed a place in reception class. A separate application must be made to the Local Authority which is responsible for allocating places in our Reception class.
