National Offer Day - 16 April 2021

  • You will be sent an email informing you which school has been offered. The email will name the school your child has been offered on 16 April 2021 which you should receive by 4pm. Please check your SPAM or Junk folder.
  • Please do not contact Birmingham City Council before you receive the formal notification of your child’s school place. You must be in receipt of your formal notification email before contacting the council.
  • You will only need to inform us by 30 April 2021 if you are refusing this offer. Details of how to do this will be included on your offer email and letter. If you do not refuse the offer, the school will update their records to show the offer has been accepted. 

By refusing the offer, you will lose the place as this will be given to a child on the waiting list for that school.

By not refusing the place offered and therefore accepting the offer, this will not affect your child’s waiting list position for any of your higher preference schools, or influence the outcome of any appeal you may submit.

Waiting lists

Waiting lists will be created 3 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.

Being on a waiting list does not mean that a place will become available.

More information about waiting lists will be available after National Offer Day.
