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
- Looked after children (in public care) and previously looked after children.
- 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 ‘Looked After’ 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 pack 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 pack will be distributed to families that reside in Birmingham 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.
