Admission and Transfer Arrangements
Kineton Green welcomes visits from prospective parents. If you would like to visit the school please telephone to make an appointment, or come on one of the ‘Open days’ below.
Kineton Green Primary admits 26 children into our part-time, morning nursery (FS1). The bulk of our admissions occur in September, but children can be enrolled at the start of the term after they become 3 years old, if there are available places.
If there are more applications for FS1 than places available, places will be allocated using clear criteria as outlined in the admissions guidance which is available to download here (KG nursery admissions guidance). Higher priority is given to children with siblings already attending our school, those living within the school’s local area, and applicants that have exceptional social or medical grounds.
The standard school provision is 3 hours per day Monday – Friday (15 hours per week). Working parents may be entitled to additional free childcare, advice regarding entitlement, is given here Extended Entitlement 30 Hours Eligibility (PDF)
All enquiries to the school office firstname.lastname@example.org
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 online application 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.

Parents of FS2 (Reception) children do not need to apply for a KS1 (Infant) place as children will automatically continue into the Infant department.
Parents of KS1 (Infant) children in primary schools do not need to apply for a KS2 (Junior) place as children will automatically continue into the Junior department.
Transfer to Secondary School (KS3)
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 in the Summer Term of Year 5.
