School Admissions - Online Applications



Primary Education - Reception


Children join our Reception class in September of the year they reach five. Allocations are made by the Local Authority in line with their Admissions Policy. If you are considering applying for your child to attend Forsbrook CE Primary School, please register for our open morning by calling our school office on 01782 392577. Our open morning will take place on Friday 18th October at 9:30am.  This is a chance to meet the head teacher and see our school in action. You will be guided by our Year 6 children, who will talk to you about their Forsbrook CE Primary School experience and answer any questions you have about our school.

The School Admissions Team allocate all school Reception class places - for further details on the admissions process including admission criteria, catchment areas, appeals etc visit the Staffordshire County Council website. 


School Admissions do not issue application forms as the Service is keen to provide a paperless system in all its admissions processes wherever possible.  The website also gives details if you wish to apply for a mid-year transfer but we would request that you contact the school first.

Reception admissions for September 2020 opens on Friday 1st November 2019 and closes on Wednesday 15th January 2020. Staffordshire County council will offer places on Thursday 16th April.


Please note: applications for admission into Forsbrook Nursery should be made directly with Forsbrook CE Primary School. We have three rooms in our nursery, admitting children from 8 weeks old. Please contact our office at for more information. Please note that children who attend our pre-school nursery are not automatically guaranteed a place in school - the normal admission process applies.   

Visits to School

Prospective parents are welcome to visit school prior to their child starting school. Please see above for dates and times of the open morning. Please note that an induction evening meeting for parents takes place prior to your child starting school. The meeting gives you the opportunity to ask any questions or concerns that you may have.  Children joining our Nursery and Reception classes will also be invited to attend induction sessions at the end of the summer term prior to them starting in the September. These dates will be made available when places have been allocated.
