Applications for admission must be made on Birmingham City Council’s Common Application Form.
Parents wishing to apply for a place at Bells Farm Primary School for a Reception Class child due to start school in the September following their 4th Birthday must:
• Complete the COMMON APPLICATION FORM, which is available from the Education Department. This should then be returned directly to the Education Department
• Parents wishing to apply for a place at Bells Farm Primary School for a child at any other time must 1st complete an in-year application at current school and ensure that the Head Teacher has signed it. They should then bring this to Bells Farm and request a place/position on waiting list. An appointment with a member of Senior Management will be arranged once the school has a place or once the child is near to the top of the waiting list.
If the number of children applying for admission exceeds the number of places available, places will be allocated based on the following order of priority.
In order of priority
1) An older brother or sister currently attending the school (including step brother / sister living at the same address).
2) If the above criteria do not apply, then the nearness of the child’s home to the school main entrance, via roads/paths will be taken into account.
Where any of the above criteria are oversubscribed, then priority will be given to ‘Looked After’ children, Forces children and children with Statements of SEN.
