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 call our school office and we can discuss options for meeting the headteacher and visiting the school. We cannot carry out our open morning as usual due to current restrictions.
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 2021 opens on 1st November 2020 and closes on 15th January 2021. Staffordshire County council will offer places on 16th April 2021.
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 call our school office to arrange this. 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.
