Guidance from Walsall Council: Oversubscription criteria for primary schools in Walsall
If there are more applications than there are places available, places will be allocated using the Oversubscription Criteria from Walsall Council.
The following is in order of priority:
- Children in Public Care (looked after children).
- Pupils who have a sibling already in attendance at the school, who will be still attending the school at the proposed admission date.
- Pupils for whom a place at the school is essential on medical or social grounds as supported in writing by a medical practitioner or a social worker. (Applications will be subject to verification by Walsall Children’s Services).
- Distance between the home address and the school as measured in a straight line with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.
If you are contacting us by email please ensure that you include your name and contact details and your child’s name and date of birth.
Secondary School Admissions:
Applications need to be made online at – www.walsall.gov.uk/education. You may need to complete an additional application form for certain secondary schools (these are listed on the front of the parents information leaflet and can be downloaded from the school admissions pages of the Walsall Council website, or the website of the appropriate secondary school).
As your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 he or she is due to transfer to a secondary school in September 2024.
It is vitally important that all applications are made on time as late applicants may not receive a place at their chosen schools (Walsall Council Secondary admissions website).
