Admissions

If you are considering Butts Primary School for your child(ren) please check the entrance criteria below.  If there are more applications than there are places available, places will be allocated using the following criteria:-

 

1. Children in Public Care (looked after children).

 

2. Pupils who have a sibling already in attendance at the school  and who will be still attending the school at the proposed admission date. 

 

3. Pupils for whom a place at the school is essential on medical or social grounds as supported in writing by a medical practitioner or a social worker. 

 

4. Distance between the home address and the school as measured in a straight line with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.

 

5. The Governors offer Nursery places on a 'waiting-list' system. There is no specific catchment area restriction for this age. Prior to entering Nursery, there are home visits to ease the transition from home to school. Nursery also operates Open Days for children and parents to become familiar with staff and the building. Parents are informed by letter that gaining a Nursery place does not guarantee a Reception place within our school.

 

 

Mid Year Admissions

 

Parents need to apply to the school.  If no places are available, names will be put on a waiting list.  There is a new list at the beginning of each term.  It is your responsibility to telephone the school each term and ask for your child's name to be kept on the waiting list.

 

Requests for places from Reception to Year 6 should be directed to School Admissions based at:-

The school operates a computerised pupil database containing details of emergency telephone contacts, doctors details etc. On admission to our school, parents / carers will be asked to complete a 'Pupil Contact Sheet', a 'Parental Consent Form' and a 'Walsall NHS Community Health Form'.

 

Please let the school office know immediately of any changes to your child's contact details. For example:-

  • changes to telephone numbers of any contacts on your child's form
  • any change of address
  • any new medical information which the school needs to be aware of.

It is vital that we are able to contact you in case of an emergency.
