In October 2017 the parents of children who are due to start school will be sent a letter and a pre-printed form advising them of how to apply for a reception school place and where to obtain the primary information booklet.


Copies of the booklet are available at all Birmingham Primary Schools, Libraries, Health Centres, Children's Centres, Doctors Surgeries, private and Community Nurseries and also electronically.


Parents can also apply on-line at or by completing the Local Authority Preference form which will be sent out during October.


The final closing date for applications is Monday 15th January 2018.  


Offer emails and letters will be sent out in April 2018.

Parents can apply for a place in the autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It’s important that you apply for a place as soon as possible. The final closing date for applications is Monday 15th January 2018.
