We are always happy to receive visits from parents considering applying to the school for a place for their child. This should be done by making an appointment by telephone. Some of our year groups are very full and it may not always be possible to accommodate pupils of certain ages who are transferring from other primary schools.
The school admissions policy is as follows:
Children in Sandwell are admitted to school at the beginning of the Academic Year in which they are 5, provided a school place is available. The order of priority for entry to reception classes will be applied to children who are aged 5 between 1st September and the following 31st August in the admission year as follows:
- Children undergoing assessment under Section 321 and 323 of the Education Act 1996.
- Children with a brother or sister who will be attending the school at the same time regardless of distance from home to school.
- Children with medical needs (recommended and supported by a doctor’s certificate) regardless of distance from home to school.
- Children who live at a certain distance as measured in a straight line from a child’s home to the nearest available entrance to the school.
This policy will also be applied by the governors of the school in the case of all admissions applications other then those from reception children.
