To apply for a place at Krishna Avanti Primary School, Leicester, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Check when your child is due to start – click here to check: What year is my child in?
  2. Read the Admissions Policy. Take note of the oversubscription criteria as you may have elements that which give you priority over others should we receive more applicants than places.
  3. Complete the City Council’s admissions form and return it to the Council offices. The deadline for submitting this form is 15th January 2024.
  4. Parents must also complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if wishing to apply for a place on the basis of Hindu practice or for an ISKCON Leicester place. Please download the form from the link below. The SIF must be returned to the School office and not to the City Council, no later 15th January 2024. The office address is on the form.

Any application received after the closing date will be considered after all of those completed and submitted on time.

What happens next:

Offers of Reception places will be emailed to applicants from the City Council on  16th April 2024. A letter will also be sent by second class post.

Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a waiting list. If a place becomes available this will be allocated using the School’s Admissions Policy and over subscriptions criteria.
