Thank you so much for your interest in our wonderful school.
We are proud that Woodhouse Primary Academy is an over-subscribed and popular school. We have waiting lists in most year groups, and this year we had more applications for a place in our Reception than there were places. We take new children across the school during the year as places become available, so if you are interested in joining us - get in touch! If there is not a space for your child, then you would be welcome to join our waiting list.
With apologies, at present we are unable to offer visits to school for prospective parents and have been unable to yet plan any open sessions. It is hoped that when restrictions are eased, we can offer visits to school to experience what our school is about and see us in action. We certainly hope to have been able to offer a range of visit times before the National Submission date for 2021 Reception places, 15th January 2021. Further details of the process of application can be found on the Birmingham City Council website here. You can also read their letter with further information here. The online process for Reception 2021 Admissions went live from 1st October 2020. Children with dates of birth between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, that reside in Birmingham and do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan should apply. If you live outside of Birmingham they must apply to their home Local Authority (wherever they pay their Council Tax e.g. Sandwell or Dudley).
However, you can tell a great deal about our school and what it is like to be a part of our Woodhouse community online. If you look around this website you will hopefully get a flavour of our school – what sort of things we get up to and the sort of school that we are. There is everything here: details of our curriculum, lots of information about what makes Woodhouse special and also our digital prospectus here. You can even look back through our past letters and newsletters to see the vibrant life of our school over time!
There is also lots of information about Reception which was prepared for our September 2020 intake here. This will help you to understand more about our Early Years Foundation Stage and hopefully go some way to filling in some gaps for you.
Thank you again for your interest - we hope you choose to apply for Woodhouse! We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.
