Admission Arrangement for Kitwell School

 

Our admission arrangements follow the detailed guidance for maintained community schools issued by Birmingham City Council. This can be found by clicking on the hyperlink below to Birmingham County Council.

The Code has a statutory basis which says that arrangements, practices and criteria should actively promote equality. It places upon local authorities additional requirements to promote fair access to educational opportunity for every child, to secure diversity, increase opportunities for parental choice and promote community cohesion. 

Class Sizes

 We are a one form entry Primary School. Thirty places are available in each of the classes from Nursery through to Year 6.

 

 Admission Criteria in the case of over-subscription

 Where there are more applicants than there are places available, we will offer places based on the following order of priority:

  1. Looked After Children (in public care).
  2. Children with a brother or sister at the school who will still be in attendance at the time the sibling enters the school.
  3. Children who live nearest to the school by straight line measurement.

 

In-year Transfer

 Currently Parents should contact the Local Authority Admissions Department (0121 675 0555) if they wish to move their child to another school during the school year.
