Primary Admissions

Staffordshire County Council are responsible for our admissions for Reception. Thirty statutory school children can be admitted each academic year.

In accordance with the Authority’s policy, priority is given to those children who are Looked After, to those who have older siblings at the school and to those where ease of access is measured by the shortest walking route.  Prospective parents are offered a visiting day in the term prior to the school year in which a pupil starts full time education. 


Details of the Admissions Policy are available on the Staffordshire County Council website please click the link below.

Applications must be made on official forms and allocations are made by the School Admissions Office.
