School Admissions

At Fibbersley Park Academy, we follow the Walsall Local Authority criteria for admissions.

Where the number of preferences received exceeds the number of places available, the following criteria is applied:

  1. Children in Public Care (looked after children).
  2. Children who have an older sibling already in attendance at the school when the application is made and who will be attending the school at the proposed admission date.
  3. Children for whom a place at the school is essential on medical or social grounds and is supported in writing by a medical practitioner or a social worker.
  4. Distance will be measured in a straight line from the centre point of the home address to the centre point of the school address with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.
