How To Apply for a Primary School Reception Place

Applications for primary school reception places will be managed inside the normal Local Authority process for co-ordinating school offers.  

To apply for a place within the normal admissions round, applications must be submitted to the Local Authority in which you live, naming the primary reception school of choice on the application form. 

The deadline for applications is usually 15 January each year – check with the local authority that you are applying to.

Parents will be advised of the outcome of their application in writing from Sandwell Local Authority. This usually happens in April each year.

If you have applied online, you will be able to log onto your account and view your offer. 

Once places have been confirmed, you will need to follow the relevant Local Authority’s process for accepting your offer.
