Nursery Offer

We have 104 Part-Time places at our Nursery.

The children are divided into small groups with their own key practitioner.

Children are admitted into the Nursery Class at age 3+, usually for the academic year prior to starting at school in Reception at age 4+.  If nursery places become available throughout the year, children will be admitted after they are 3. A list of all those wishing to be considered for a Nursery place is kept with the admissions officer in the Admissions Office. An application form can be obtained from the school reception staff at the Talbot Way entrance and proof of your child’s date of birth, and place of residence must be shown on registration.

A place in our Nursery does not mean you will be allocated a place in Reception – all parents have to apply for a Reception place following the Local Authority procedure.

Application Form SEPT 2019.pdf

Ark Victoria Reception places - September 2019

The closing date for applications to start Primary schools in September 2019 is 15th January 2019.

Children in Birmingham can start school (Reception) in the September after their 4th birthday.

Example: If your child was born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015, they'll be able to start school in September 2019.

When to apply

Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It is important that you apply for a place as soon as possible:

attendance at a nursery class does not give a child automatic priority for a place

do not wait until your child is five years old, or your preferred school may already be full

The closing date for applications for Reception Class 2019 is 15th January 2019.

How to Apply

Apply on-line via the Birmingham City Council website. Please note it is really important that you apply on time. If you apply late you may be less likely to get a place at one of your preferred schools.

If you need help applying for a place at Ark Victoria Academy please contact the school on 0121 393 4459 or call in to main reception at either building.
