Choosing a school for your child is one of the biggest decisions you have to make as a parent. This Thursday (15 January) is the last day you can apply to have your say as to which primary school your child will be going to this September.

The application deadline is for parents whose children are due to start reception class this September.

Children in Birmingham can go to school in the September after their fourth birthday. If your child was born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011, he / she will be able to start school in September 2015.

By law, you must ensure that your child is receiving suitable full-time education at the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday.

If you have a child who you think should be starting primary school this September, don’t delay – complete your application form today. Birmingham City Council operates an online application system. Please click on the link below to visit their site:
