Colmers Farm Primary School considers all applications in line with our admissions policy and Fair Access Protocol.
When we are full as a school, we will have on roll 420 pupils. This is broken down across the year groups as follows:
- EYFS - 60
- Year 1 - 60
- Year 2 - 60
- Year 3 - 60
- Year 4 - 60
- Year 5 - 60
- Year 6 - 60
If we have more applications for a year group than spaces, we use our oversubscription criteria to decide which children to admit. The criteria order is:
1. Looked After Children (in public care) or previously Looked After Children;
2. Siblings (brother or sister who is still in attendance at our school);
3. Distance (children who live nearest to our school.
Applying for a reception place for next year
If your child is due to start Reception in September then you will need to make an application to Birmingham Local Authority who deal with admissions that take place at the usual transfer times.
Details of how to do this can be found on the Birmingham Admissions web page (external link).
If you are applying for a place in any year group other than Reception, you will need to contact the school directly. Please ask to speak to Mrs Ayres who deals with admissions.
We will send you an in-year transfer form to complete. Once this is completed and returned we will be able to advise you whether we can offer you a place immediately or whether your child will need to go on a waiting list until a space becomes available.
