In order for your child to be admitted to school, parents should complete a school application form and provide proof of their child’s date of birth. A formal application for entry to primary school from Staffordshire County Council is then sent out in the autumn term of the school year before your child is five years old. Your child is then admitted in September preceding his/her fifth birthday. Parents may apply for places at anytime after this date if vacancies exist.
Children can also join our Nursery class part time in the autumn term of the school year before they turn four. For more information about Nursery admissions please click here.
It is intended that the Published Admission Number (PAN) of pupils to be admitted to this school at the normal age of entry will not exceed 30.

1. Relevant Looked After Children
2. Pupils who satisfy both of the following tests: Test 1 – medical grounds Test 2 – they would suffer hardship if unable to attend
3. Pupils who have an elder sibling in attendance at the school and who will still be attending the school at the proposed admission date
4. Pupils living within the catchment area of the school
