  • If you applied online and provided an email address, Birmingham City Council will email you on 17 April 2022 to tell you which school your child has been offered. We cannot guarantee the exact time you will receive your email, as this will depend on your service provider. However, we expect that you will receive your offer email by 4pm on Monday 17 April 2023.
  • Please ensure you check your junk/spam folder for the email address you provided.
  • We will also send you a formal offer letter that will be posted by 1st class post on Monday 17 April 2023. Please allow at least three working days for your letter to arrive.
  • The offer letter will explain how to accept or refuse the offer that has been made.
  • Please do not contact Birmingham City Council before you receive the notification of your child’s school place. The School Admissions team will be unable to inform you by telephone which school has been offered to your child until Wednesday 19 April 2023.

Accept the place offered

The formal offer letter will explain the process.

Waiting lists

Waiting lists will be created three weeks following the offer of school places. The waiting list will move up and down as offers are accepted or declined. If your first preference was Nishkam Primary School Birmingham and you were not offered a place you will automatically be on the waiting list until the 31st December 2023. Please note we do not give out waiting list position information as it can change on a daily basis. The waiting list will be ranked only when a place becomes available using the over-subscription criteria. If you would like to join the waiting list please contact your home local authority and complete a supplementary Information (SIF) form if applying for a faith place. The waiting list is held in accordance with the admission criteria of the school, not in order of applications received. All waiting lists are cleared at the end of each academic year, and no names are carried forward into the next academic year.
