Kineton Green Primary School, alongside other Primary schools, offers education in the Foundation Stage (Nursery) from September for children who have reached their third birthday.
If there are more applications for the FS1 than places available, places will be allocated by the LEA using clear criteria which give the highest priority to children living within the school’s local area, and those applicants that are accepted as having exceptional social or medical grounds.
Kineton Green Primary School provides thirty morning places in FS1.
Government developments require that Nursery (FS1) and Reception (FS2), classes be managed as a discrete stage – Foundation Stage.
The school cannot guarantee a FS1 (Nursery) pupil will be admitted to the FS2 (Reception) class. Parents of children in FS1 must complete an application form to request a FS2 place. (The school can provide current LEA criteria for the allocation of places).
In Solihull, children start in FS2 in September following their fourth birthday.
Kineton Green Primary School provides thirty full time places in FS2 .
Kineton Green Primary School is a one-form entry school with thirty children in each year group.
Parents of KS1(Infant) children in Primary Schools do not need to apply to the same school for a KS2 (Junior) place as children will automatically continue into the Junior department.
Transfer to Secondary School
Our local secondary school is Langley School and at the end of Year 6 some children may transfer to it. However, parents can request a place at another Solihull school and some children may take examinations and transfer to selective schools. Parents in Solihull Borough are sent details of procedures early in the Summer Term of Year 5.
