If you would like your child to attend our school, please see below the full details of our admission arrangements.


In-year applications and Nursery applications should be made direct to Yardley Wood Community Primary School via the school office. If you wish your child to start in Reception from September, you must apply via Birmingham City Council School Admissions (see link below).

Our Nursery can take up to 52 pupils, and Reception to Year 6 can take 60 pupils per year group (30 in each class). Should you wish to put your child onto our waiting list, the parent / guardian will need to complete the correct admissions paperwork.


Priority for a school place is as follows (in order of first to last priority):

  • children with EHC Plans or Looked After Children - parents can name a school they wish their child to attend as part of the plan.  This is done through a process with SENAR or the LAC team.
  • siblings of children already in school
  • families living in the catchment area
  • distance from school


Appeals are administered by the Local Authority. Parents who wish to appeal against the decision to refuse their child admission should contact the School Admissions and Fair Access Service on 0121 303 1888 to request an appeal form. Appeals will be heard by an independent panel.
