Starting school is an important step in the life of a child therefore we aim to try and make it a pleasurable and happy one.


Up to 60 children are admitted into our two reception classes. They come into school at the beginning of the academic year in which they become five. In Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, children are divided into two classes per year group.


The admissions procedures for the Reception classes operate in line with the Birmingham Local Authority’s Policy on priorities:


  • Children with statements of special educational needs, who have been identified as needing to attend schools with specific facilities to accommodate them.
  • Siblings who have brothers and sisters attending the school and who will still be in attendance at the time the sibling enters school.
  • Nearness of the child’s home to the school as measured by a straight line measurement to one fixed point in the school.


More information regarding school admissions can be found by looking at our school policy (on our policies page, linked below) and also by visiting the Birmingham City Council website.
