Nursery Admissions

We have 26 part-time places at our Nursery. The children are divided into small groups with their own key practitioner. Children are admitted into the Nursery Class at age 3+, usually for the academic year prior to starting at school in Reception at age 4+. If nursery places become available throughout the year, children will be admitted after they are 3. A list of all those wishing to be considered for a Nursery place is kept with the admissions officer in the Admissions Office. An application form can be obtained from the school reception staff at the Talbot Way entrance and proof of your child’s date of birth, and place of residence must be shown on registration.

A place in our Nursery does not mean you will be allocated a place in Reception – all parents have to apply for a Reception place following the Local Authority procedure. Please contact Birmingham City Council for more information.
