 How to make an In-Year application

Reception and Year 2-3 Admissions – September 2023

Online admissions opens on 1 October 2022 for Reception and Year 2-3 (Infant to Junior) admissions in September 2023.  Applications can be made online through the Birmingham City Council website until the final deadline of 15 January 2023. Please note as 16 April 2023 is a Sunday, offers will be sent on Monday 17 April.

Please can you help raise awareness of the process as parents who apply late are less likely to be offered one of their preferred schools.  All the information parents need to support with making their preferences is available on our website. More advice and support is also available from Children’s Services on 0121 303 1888.

There is no guarantee that the same admission pattern and ‘cut off’ distances will apply for 2022.

Children with an Education Health and Care Plan

Any child with an Education Health and Care Plan/statement of special educational needs is required to be admitted to the school that is named in the statement. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the named school. This is not an oversubscription criterion.

Oversubscription Criteria

1. Looked after or previously looked after children.

2. Siblings; brother or sister who will still be in attendance (not Nursery) in September 2022 at Lyndon Green Infant or Lyndon Green Junior School.

3. Distance (children who live nearest the school measured in a straight line).

Distances are calculated on the basis of a straight line measurement between the applicant’s home address and the main entrance of the school building.


School Admissions and Fair Access Service make every effort to ensure that the information contained in the 'Primary Admissions Arrangements 2021' for each school is up to date and correct. However, for a copy of the school's full and most recent admissions policy and oversubscription criteria, please feel free to visit: Admissions Arrangements Community Schools
