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 likely to attend. Note however that this does not restrict parents making preferences for any school across the District or elsewhere.

Additional information on the Schools in the 26 Planning areas are shown below:
