Attending a linked school / nursery Notes

  • If applying to Abbey Catholic Primary School, please list any siblings at a linked Institution on the preference form.

Distance from School / Catchment Notes

  • Distances are calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement from the front door of the applicant's home address and the front gate/main entrance of the school.

Special Education Needs (SEN) Notes

  • A child (or a parent) with a statement of Medical, Social or Special Educational Needs, or Education and Health Care Plan is required to be admitted to the school that is named in the statement. The needs must be fully supported by written evidence from a relevant professional.

Oversubscription and selection

  • Where the number of applications is greater than the published admission number, all applications will be ranked using the over-subscription criteria.
  • If there is oversubscription within a category, the governors will give priority to those children living closest to the school determined by the shortest distance. The local authority’s ‘distance’ definition has been adopted.

How to make in-year application

  • Applications made outside the normal admission round (in-year admissions) must be made directly to the school(s) concerned. The local authority will provide an in-year application form for parents to complete. You may also be required to complete an additional information form provided by the school.

Applying to Reception Class

  • An application must be made online at https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20119/school_admissions. Or by using the local authority preference form. You will also be required to complete an additional information form for this school, which is available from the school or the local authority. Both forms must be completed for a place.

Appeals

  • If a child is refused admission, parents have a right to appeal to an independent appeals panel. An appeal form can be obtained from the school office.
