Nursery Places from September 2022


Applications for entry to Nursery class in September 2022


If you have a child who was born between between September 1st 2018 and August 31st 2019, then they are due to start Nursery in September 2022.


An application is made directly to Conway Primary School, the application forms are available from the School Office. For more information or to secure a place, please call our friendly staff on 0121 675 0622 who will be happy to help.


Our Nursery classes are taught by qualified teachers who deliver a personalised curriculum to ensure that your child will have the very best start to their education. 


Please note: 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.  


Reception Admissions


Applications for entry to Reception class in September 2022


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.


Even if your child has a sibling at school you are still required to submit an application.


You will need to select three different schools in order of preference. Please see the

guidance on making a realistic application to support you in your choices.

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 2017and 31 August 2018, they'll be able to start school in September 2022.

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:

  • attendance at a nursery class doesn’t give a child automatic priority for a place
  • don’t wait until your child is 5 years old, or your preferred school may already be full

You can list up to 3 preferred schools when you apply.


Secondary School Admissions (for Year 6 Pupils)


You must submit an online application form by 31 October 2021.


You will receive an email confirmation that you have submitted your application form. Please ensure you check your spam or junk folder.  It is important that you check your confirmation email to make sure everything is correct. You can amend your preferences right up to 11.59 pm on the closing date (31 October 2021). Click here for details on how to apply. If you need help to complete the application process, please speak to Mrs Bowater, Mrs Shafiq or Mrs Eaton.


Waiting lists will be created three weeks following the offer of school places. Your child’s name will be automatically added to the waiting list for any higher preference schools than the one offered (unless your child did not achieve a high enough score in the grammar school selection test). Being on a waiting list does not mean that a place will become available.

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.
