If you live in Birmingham you should apply for your child’s secondary school place online here between 1 September and 31 October 2020. It is important that you submit your application by 31 October 2020. Applications received after the national closing date of 31 October 2020 will be treated as late applications, late applicants are less likely to be offered a place at one of their preferred schools and these applications will be processed after 1 March 2021 in accordance to Birmingham’s coordinated admissions scheme.

Free School Meals You may have seen the announcement from Birmingham City Council on Friday 23rd September about the help they will be providing for children who are entitled to means tested free school meals. The council will be making arrangements for this during the next week. They will be working to ensure vouchers or equivalent can be provided retrospectively to schools after the half-term break to be distributed to families. If you do require support during this difficult period, please contact Birmingham Children’s Partnership. Please Click Here

Online Safety
Due to the current situation we know many young people are spending more time online. As a result of this, in Birmingham there has been an increase in grooming, exploitation and online abuse. It is often easier for an offender to gain access to a child one-to-one online rather than offline. Please see the information below to help keep your child safe online.
