Admissions

All children will begin school at the start of the autumn term in September. Admission forms are available at the school office or school admissions in Walsall. If you join midway through the year again you need to be liaising with the school office and will be given a place if one is available in the year group required. We can admit 90 children into each year group.
Classes are organised in mixed ability groups according to their age. Class group are changed at the beginning of each year when pupils move to their next class.
In the event of us being oversubscribed Governors will use the following criteria to make a fair selection.

  • Does your child have an older brother or sister in the school?
  • Has your child attended Whitehall Infant School?
  • Any social or medical conditions which need to be taken into account?
  • How far do you live from the school as the crow flies?

Attending school regularly and on time is a good habit for your child to get into.

Children with high attendance receive special certificates at end of year and each week the class with the highest attendance get a special treat of their choice.

Children should only miss school for illness, medical appointments or particular family circumstances which may be discussed with the teacher.

If your child is absent you must inform the school by telephone on the first morning of absence (01922 720778), or by letter when he/she returns. Parents are able to text theschool on 07717308524 for your child’s absence.

When leaving a message on the school telephone or mobile please speak clearly and report your child’s name, class, nature of illness and expected date of return

This absence will then be recorded as authorised. Should you fail to report an absence you may be contacted. The Government have made it clear that they believe unauthorised absences to be truancy. The number of authorised and unauthorised absences your child has had during the year will be written on your

child's report.

Should your child be persistently absent for any reason, authorised or unauthorised an Education Welfare Officer may visit you.

Parents, please arrange appointments for dental or medical, after school or in the school holidays if at all possible. This would minimise distribution to your child’s education.

For your child's safety should your child have a dental or medical appointment during the school day they must be collected from school. We will not allow a child to go home on their own.
