Which intake can your child join?
At Kings Norton Nursery School, we have three separate intakes each academic year. Children are able to start Nursery the term after their 3rd birthday, or the term after their 2nd birthday if they are an eligible 2 year old.
Most of our children start in September at the beginning of the autumn term, however, we can accept new children up until the autumn census which is usually completed in the first week of October. More children join us at the beginning of the spring and summer terms, if space allows. However, as with the September intake, we can only accept children up until the dates of each terms' census, which are usually held in the third weeks of January and May. The dates are linked to the national census dates as we can only claim funding for the children who are listed on our census for that term. We are unable to accept new children after the census has been completed for that term unless you would like your child to join as a fee paying child.
As we are a Local Authority Maintained Nursery School, we follow the Birmingham City Council admissions policy and criteria. Therefore, if we have more applicants than places, we will order applicants according to the admissions criteria which are as follows:
Looked after children or children who were previously looked after (including previously looked after children from outside of England)
Please read our Admissions Policy for further information.
