Dickens Heath Community Primary School

Enabling every child to be the best version of themselves


As a Local Authority maintained school, all admission applications and enquiries, with the exception of nursery children, should be directed to Solihull Council Admissions Team via their website. 


Foundation Stage Open Days


Due to the rise in COVID cases within Solihull and more locally within our Dickens Heath community, the decision has been made to cancel the open days scheduled this term. For more information about our foundation stage provision, please click on the video below from our Head Teacher Mrs Nicholls. Please accept our sincere apologies.


Nursery application packs can be collected from our school office, or downloaded via the links below.


5th October 2021 10am-11am - Cancelled

Impact of COVID-19, 2020-21


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, unfortunately we will be unable to show any prospective parents around school this term in order to ensure our children and staff remain safe.  Instead, our Headteacher, Mrs Nicholls, has recorded a video to share with prospective parents which can be found below.



In addition to the video, more information about our school can be found here on the website but should you have any specific queries, please email the office.


Welcome to FS1!

Nursery class

All Solihull infant and primary schools are now responsible for their own admissions policy. In order to provide as much information as possible for parents, we have published a copy of our policy for admissions, along with information leaflets about the government 30 hour free childcare.
You will also find copies for our school forms for additional childcare needs and the nursery place application form on the links at the bottom of this page.



Welcome to FS2!

Reception class

Our school follows Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council’s admission arrangements for reception aged children.


Each year, the council publishes information detailing of the admission arrangements for Solihull schools. The information is available from the Solihull Council school admissions team on 01217046693 or from the SMBC website at


You can apply for a place online at

Reception application forms are available from the Solihull School admissions Team 12 months before the child is due to start in reception.


Attendance in a school nursery will not give any priority for a place in the reception class at the same school. A reception application form must be completed.
