The deadline for primary school applications is fast approaching (January 15) so we’ve compiled a huge guide to all the primary schools across Birmingham to help parents decide.

The Real Schools Guide 2020 – put together by the Reach data unit – rates schools on everything from pupil-teacher ratios and absence rates to progress and SATs results.

Now in its seventh year, the guide uses 45 different measures from data covering the 2018/19 school year to ensure parents get a full picture as to how their child’s school is doing.

This makes it much more comprehensive than traditional league tables, which only look at overall Key Stage 2 results and progress scores.

It’s good to see, once again, that schools in some of the city’s inner city and more deprived wards are flourishing.

Parents can go online to browse the full data, compare different schools, and find links to contact details and recent Ofsted reports.

See below to find out how to search for your school.

So, which is the best school in Birmingham?

Lea Forest Primary Academy in Kitts Green is the best state-funded primary school in the area, according to our guide.

In second place is Little Sutton Primary School in Sutton Coldfield while third is Barr View Primary & Nursery Academy in Great Barr

Sadly, none of our schools feature in the national top 10.

Take a look at the best primary schools in the Black Country and the best primary schools in Solihull too. You can also check how you school compares to the best schools in the West Midlands too.

Scores are worked out by giving the best performing school in each category top marks, with all other schools receiving points adjusted according to their performance in comparison. Schools where performance is below average receive negative points up to a maximum of -0.5.

Scores for each measure are then added together to get a total, which is adjusted to give an official score that does not include negative numbers.

Stars are allocated by ranking all the scores in order for each indicator and then splitting schools into five groups.
