We are delighted that we are now once again able to have open events, the next of which will be on Tuesday 9th November 2021 at 9.30am and Thursday 11th November 2021 at 2pm. You will be able to hear from the Head, Mr Court, and have a look round the school to get a feel for our work and ethos and ask any questions that you may have. Entrance to the school is via reception on Valentine Road. We look forward to meeting you.
The local authority use a ‘metre measurement from door to gate’ calculation for new admissions to Reception. The trend for the last few years has been an increase in that measurement as birth rate has declined but it does fluctuate each year. We would suggest getting in touch with the admissions department and seeing if they can advise you if you are unsure.
Yes. The ‘over-subscribed’ priority order is;
- Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan
- Looked after children or children who were previously looked after
- Children with a brother and sister already at the school
- Children who live nearest to the school
(Taken from Birmingham City Council document ‘Admissions arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools for 2020/2021’. This document also states that ‘Within each of the categories above, priority is given to those who live nearest to the school’ and that ‘Admission to a nursery school or nursery class does not give the child any priority or an extra right to transfer... to the school to which the nursery is linked or attached. A separate application must be made.’)
