Guidance from Walsall Council: Oversubscription criteria for primary schools in Walsall

Reception admissions:

 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.

The Local Authority now deal with all midyear admissions. Parents seeking a mid-year admission should contact the admissions team for an application form on 01922 652585.
