Bradford Council has a statutory duty to ensure there are sufficient school places in the District to meet present and future demand .The demand for school places changes over time and predicting demand is a complex task involving a range of factors such as birth rates, housing growth and inward and outward migration.

For forecasting purposes all primary schools are organised into planning areas, these are also a requirement for reporting purposes to the Department of Education. Bradford District Primary schools are grouped into 26 planning areas, based on where children live and which schools they are likley to attend. Note however that this does not restrict parents making preferences for any school across the District or elsewhere.

School Organisation Plan: Duties,responsibilities and the underlying principles to the provision of education facilities in Bradford, consultation.

The School Organisation Plan is currently being reviewed and will be published later this year as a new document combining School Organisation, Childcare Sufficiency and SEND Sufficiency planning.
