Marsh Hill, Erdington, Birmingham B23 7HY | Telephone: 0121 464 2920

Admissions

Our current pupil admission number is 60 pupils. Our school serves the Stockland Green area but, space permitting, we are happy to take children from surrounding areas. Admissions follow the Birmingham Local Authority Admission's policy and full details are available at www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions.

For children in Reception, they all start in early September during the year in which they will reach 5 years old. Start dates may be staggered to assist with a rapid settling in period. All children under 5 years old must be toilet trained.

An induction meeting is held during the Summer term when parents are invited to come into the school. The school currently undertakes home visits prior to the children starting school in the Summer term, which is a great opportunity for parents to discuss with our staff any concerns or information they need to share with the school. It also familiarises both child and parents with our staff. Children moving from other schools are sensitively introduced to our systems.

Parents moving into the area are encouraged to come and look around the school and meet the headteacher.

At the age of 11, children transfer to their secondary school. We have close links with the local secondary schools and a transition programme will be in place to assist with the changes children will face. Teachers will always make time available to discuss any issues arising from this process.

Applications

Applications must be made online at www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions or by using the local authority preference form.

Admission criteria

Children are admitted to schools in accordance with parental preference as far as possible. However, where there are more applications than there are places available, places at schools will be offered based on the oversubscription criteria.

Oversubscription criteria

  1. Looked after or previously looked after children.
  2. Siblings (brother or sister who will still be in attendance at the time of application)
  3. Distance (children who live nearest the school measured in a straight line).

You have the right to appeal against a decision if your child has been refused a school place.
