Admissions ProceduresChildren are admitted to Blackwell First School Nursery and Forest School in accordance with our admission's criteria and applications should be made in the January prior to the academic year in which they will attend Nursery. Please request admissions forms from the school office.
Children are admitted to Blackwell First School after applying online to Worcestershire County Council for a place before January of the year they are due to start school. Please see the school office for further information. Visits to the school are welcome. For further information and details of our Open Evening please phone the school office.

An offer of a place is made in April of the year when the child is due to start school. Blackwell First School strives to ensure that every child settles quickly into school. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to school regularly prior to entry.

Admission for pupils with disabilities

We offer provision to support those children with disabilities. The Accessibility Legislation (2003) ensures that the school is open to all children.



The school site is currently closed to external visitors as directed by the Government. For those children starting Nursery or Reception in September 2020, we are unfortunately not able to offer on site induction procedures. Instead, we will share weekly stories, messages and tours of the classrooms and site with you on our YouTube Channel from week beginning 15th June, 2020. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Blackwell First School and meeting you all in person.
