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 (at bottom of this page). 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 3rd birthday. We currently have a maximum number of 35 places per session (morning or afternoon). We also provide full wrap around with Lunch Club for children who are 3 years old - these places are controlled by school and subject to availability.
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.
We would like to invite you and your child to a Stay and Play session on one of the following dates:
- Monday 15 January at 9:30 – 10:30am
- Friday 19 January at 1:30 – 2:30pm
- Monday 22 January at 9:30 – 10:30am
- Friday 26 January at 1:30 – 2:30pm
This will give you an opportunity to see our happy and nurturing Nursery environment. Our Nursery is very popular and as a result tends to be oversubscribed. When you see what we have to offer you will understand why! Please call Mrs Robbins on 01902 750006 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your visit.
