Attendance at our Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception the following year. Parents must apply to the Local Authority (Birmingham City Council) for a Reception place as below.
Parents who are seeking a Reception class place in September 2022 for a child born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, must apply online to Birmingham City Council Local Authority. We expect the process to begin soon and we are waiting for BCC to publish details. As soon as we have this information, we will publish it on this website.
School age - when can your child start school?
Reception is the first year of primary school. It comes after Nursery, but before Year 1.
Children in Birmingham can go to school (Reception) in the September after their 4th birthday.
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, they'll be able to start school in September 2020.
When to apply
Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It’s important that you apply for a place as soon as possible:
You can list up to 3 preferred schools when you apply.
We currently admit 60 pupils in Reception to Year 6. If you wish your child to move to Brookfields Primary in the middle of a school year then you must contact the school office on 0121 675 1897. Pupils who join at other times during the year will attend a meeting with Mrs Cross, Deputy Headteacher, where a start date will be agreed.

Grammar School Admissions
If your child will be sitting the selective test for entry to grammar schools, we strongly recommend that you do not submit your online application until you know the results of your child's grammar school test. The test results for The Grammar Schools in Birmingham will be available before 31 October 2021. We are aware that with Grammar Schools in other Local Authorities you may not receive your test scores after the closing date to apply for your preferences (31 October 2021). However, online applications must be submitted by 31 October 2021 to be classed as on time. Therefore, please ensure that if you are applying for a Grammar School in another Local Authority you include it as a preference on your application.
We currently offer Nursery places in September to pupils who are 3 years old by the 31st August. Please look at the following link to check your entitlement.
