We accept children in nursery from the age of 3 and again, we'd be delighted to show you our Early Years area. We have our own admissions paperwork for nursery places, please email the school office who will be able to send you copies of the relevant paperwork. There is a specific EYFS and nursery page under the parents tab where you will find more information as we do accept children who use the 15/30 government funded hours. 


Please see Staffordshire County Council's website here on admissions. 

In Year Admissions:

Parents or carers seeking to be admitted to our school ‘in year’ may make an application directly to us using the appropriate application form. This application will be processed in line with the procedure outlined in the determined admission arrangements and parents and carers need to be aware that in the case of transfers between local schools, any date set for joining the new school may be after the next term or half term holiday and those parents/carers are responsible for ensuring that their child continues to receive appropriate education in the interim.

You can find more information on Staffordshire County Council's website here on in year admissions.

If in doubt please telephone or email the school and we will be happy to advise you.
