Proposed Admission Numbers for September 2019

Birmingham City Council is working with the Inclusion Commission to support the greater inclusion within local schools of children with a range of special educational needs, as this enables them to achieve their fullest potential by participating in and contributing to all aspects of life.

As part of this aim, the Council has been supporting the development of accessible mainstream schools, although at present children with special educational needs and disabilities who could benefit from attending these establishments, but who do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), do not receive a higher priority to be admitted to the schools.

Given the diversity of the schools across the city, the Council cannot achieve this inclusion goal alone and wishes to begin a debate on how to achieve the greater inclusion of these pupils in local accessible schools that meet their special needs. This will involve working with academy trusts, the Dioceses and other stakeholders to consider which special educational needs and disabilities require higher priority, how to evidence and measure need and how to provide sufficient accessible places across the whole city in a wide range of schools.

When this work is completed, it is anticipated that a higher admission priority for specific groups of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities will be added to the admission criteria of relevant schools in time for consultation on their 2020 to 2021 admission arrangements.

St Benedict’s Infant School (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils) is currently linked to Ark Chamberlain Primary Academy (Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6). As part of this consultation into the proposed admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2019/2020, we are consulting on the removal of the link between the two schools in order to support future proposals for St Benedict’s Infant School. 1.1-1.6 of the Birmingham Local Authority (community and voluntary controlled infant, primary and secondary schools) over-subscription criteria will still apply to St Benedict’s Infant School, however from September 2019 children attending Ark Chamberlain Academy will no longer be classed as sibling claims for applications to St Benedict’s Infant School.

From January 2018, Birmingham City Council will be consulting on a proposal to change the age range of St Benedict’s Infant School so that the school can offer places across Reception to Year 6. The proposal going forwards is for the Reception intake at the school to be 60. The Year 2 pupils will be able to transfer automatically to Year 3 at the school.
