Allens Croft Primary School follows the admissions criteria set by Birmingham City Council to ensure fair admissions procedures.
These state that places at the school are allocated on the basis of the following criteria:
Children with a Statement of Special Needs
Internationally adopted previously looked after children (IAPLAC). That is children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in care as a result of being adopted to be given equal first priority in admission arrangements, alongside looked after children (LAC) and children who were previously looked after by English local authorities (PLAC).
Siblings of children already in the school
Distance to the school by straight line measurement
Where any of the above criteria are oversubscribed, then priority will be given to ‘IAPLAC’ children, Forces children and children with EHCP’s or Statements of SEN.
Parents and carers of children who would like a place in Reception receive an application link from Admissions and Appeals at Birmingham City Council in the year that their child is four and places are allocated by the Admissions Department.
Attendance at Allens Croft Children’s Centre does not automatically guarantee your child a place at the school. This link will be distributed to families that reside in Birmingham via nurseries and do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan.
Parents and carers who apply for a place at the school after the start date in September need also to contact Admission and Appeals at Birmingham City Council and subsequently the schools themselves.
