Primary Admissions Sept 2022

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 (Reception), he or she is due to commence Reception class  in September 2022.  Walsall participates in an Inter-Local Authority (LA) Co-ordinated Admission Scheme along with a number of local authorities in the Midlands, including: Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Staffordshire and Wolverhampton.  

The scheme allows you to express preferences for up to three primary schools, rank them in order of preference and give reasons for your preferences, if appropriate (e.g. medical or social).

Parents who submit an online application for a primary school place and request an email notification will receive details of the outcome of their child’s application by email on 19 April 2022. The emails will be produced and sent by an automated process over the course of the day.

The admission criteria for every Walsall school are detailed in the school information pages within our 'Information for Parents' booklet'. If you intend to name a school outside Walsall, it is important that you obtain a copy of the maintaining local authority’s ‘Information for Parents’ booklet, or visit the relevant local authority’s website, which will detail the admission criteria for the school you would like your child/ren to attend.

Please take the opportunity to find out as much as you can about the relevant schools before you express your preferences – the Admissions and Appeals Team are here to help you.

  • If you live in Walsall, please complete the on-line application by 15 January 2022.

  • If you live in Walsall and your child attends a primary school outside Walsall, or a private school in Walsall, please complete the on-line application and submit by 15 January 2022.
  • If you live outside Walsall, you should complete an application from your home local authority and include all of your preferred schools.

This portal is now open and will be available each day from 8am to 9.30pm up until the closing date of 15 January 2022.  PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR CHILD WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY TRANSFER TO RECEPTION CLASS.
