If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Entry into Nursery and Reception classes
Applications for places are dealt with by Staffordshire County Council, phone: 0300 111 8000 or click on admissions link (above). Staffordshire County Council handle all questions and issues arising; schools remain neutral in this process.
We have one intake each year, at the start of the Autumn Term. Nursery pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 3rdbirthday. We currently have a maximum intake of 26 morning nursery places plus an additional 8 places which are allocated by the school. We also run afternoon sessions and a Lunch Club for children who are 3 years old - these places are controlled by school. Reception pupils are normally admitted to school in the September following their 4th birthday- we have a maximum intake of 60 children. Prospective parents are most welcome to make an appointment to look around our school or to visit on an Open Day.
Parents are usually asked to complete preference forms in the Autumn of the year before their child starts school. Places are allocated in the late Spring / early Summer Term. Following this stage, some parents choose to appeal to Staffordshire County Council if their choices have not been met.
Once we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child's entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents are invited to an Open Evening to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have. This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. Also, children are invited to visit the Reception class and stay for a school lunch with their parents.
Entry into Years 1 - Years 4
Parents of older children, moving into the area, are welcome to make an appointment to visit the school and to discuss admission with the Headteacher. As with entry into Reception, all applications for places are dealt with by Staffordshire County Council.
