Deferred Entry / Summer Born
Compulsory School Age
By law, parents must ensure that their children are receiving suitable full- time education at the beginning of the term after their 5th birthday.
However, in Birmingham, children are admitted to Reception Class in the September at the start of the academic year in which they reach five years of age.
Parents may, however, defer their child’s admission to primary or infant school until later in the school year, but not beyond the beginning of the first academic term after the child’s fifth birthday (the time when the child reaches compulsory school age), and not beyond the beginning of the final term of the school year of which the offer was made.

How to apply for Year 7
An application must be made online at www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions . Faith based applicants will also need to complete a ‘Faith Supporting Evidence Form’ for consideration under Group A as part of your application. The form is available to download from the www.kingsolomonibs.com website or it can be obtained by contacting the school’s admission office.
All Applicants offered Children with an Education Health and Care Plan Any child with a 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 If oversubscribed, the school will admit children under two groups. 50% of the available places will be allocated to children in Group A who are of the Christian faith. The remaining places will be allocated, without reference to faith, to children in Group B. On this basis a maximum of 50% of the available places will be allocated to children who are members of the Christian faith.
