Admissions

Will your child turn 5 between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019?


If so, you will need to apply for a Reception place.
If you live in Sandwell, you need to register to apply at www.sandwell.gov.uk/schooladmissions.  You will then receive an email with a link to complete and submit your application.  (Non Sandwell residents should contact their home authority).

 

You cannot apply before 18th September 2017, and to have the best chance of getting the school you want, you must apply by the closing date of 15th January 2018.

 

Applying online is easy and secure - over 95% of parents did last year.  Don't worry if you don't have a computer at home - you can also apply from one of Sandwell's 19 libraries or from a mobile device (e.g. smartphone or tablet).
 

We follow the admission procedure laid down by Sandwell Local Authority which handles all applications for us on our behalf.

The application form for admission to school is a very important document, and has to be filled in online.   You must make sure you fill it in as accurately and fully as possible.

 

If you don't do this, you may not end up with the choice of school you wanted. You may even end up being allocated a school place several miles away.

 

You apply via the Local Authority you live in, even if the school you wish to apply to is not in the same authority. For example, St. Mary’s is a Sandwell school, but a parent who lives in the Walsall Council area may wish to apply to the school. In this case the parent would apply via Walsall Council. The Local Authorities co-ordinate applications together.

 

Are you unsure which authority you fall into?
Visit https://www.gov.uk/find-your-local-council and use the postcode lookup, which will tell you what Council authority you live in.

 

If you don't feel confident in applying for a school place on your own, the school can support you complete an application form. Contact the school office and ask to make an appointment with Mrs. Bishop who will be able to help you.
