Current Coronavirus restrictions

Current arrangements: Overview

The admissions arrangements for each school will differ depending on the type of school.

You will find the published admission arrangements for academies, foundation and voluntary aided schools within Staffordshire by scrolling to the bottom on this webpage. 

The Office of the Schools Adjudicator

Any person or body who considers that any maintained school or academy's arrangements are unlawful, or not in compliance with the school admissions code or relevant law relating to admissions, can make an objection to the schools adjudicator.

 


 

Community and voluntary controlled schools

If the number of applications for admission to a school exceeds the school's published admissions number (PAN) then the available places for the school are allocated in strict accordance with its oversubscription criteria.

Application for variation for 2021-22

Staffordshire County Council's application to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator for a variation to its admission arrangements 2021-22 has been agreed. The application was to reduce the published admission number for Hob Hill CE/Methodist Primary School from 45 to 30.

Admission arrangements 2022-23 (September 2022 admission)

Please view the determined admission arrangements for admission year of 2022-23.

There have been no changes to the general arrangements or oversubscription criteria applied on behalf of community and voluntary controlled schools for whom the local authority is the responsible admitting authority.

However, as a result of Covid-19 and restrictions placed on people in relation to the ability to worship “on at least two Sundays per month” for last 2 years we are proposing to alter the relevant criteria so that there is a note attached worded as follows, “In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, or the person has been unable to partake in such activities due to health restrictions, the requirement in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship and/or the person was able to partake in such activities”.

 


 

Nursery school admissions arrangements

Since September 2019 schools have managed their own nursery admissions process, you should contact the individual school/setting for details of their arrangements. 

 


 

Schools maintained by other local authorities

You may prefer your child to be admitted to a school maintained by another local authority.

If this is the case, details of their admissions arrangements can be obtained by contacting the authority in question

 


 

Schools which are academies, voluntary aided, Catholic or foundation

These schools have their own oversubscription criteria. The schools use these criteria when allocating places if they are oversubscribed. You can use the A-Z list below to find the arrangements for a specific school in this category.

Please note: If the arrangements for a particular school are not detailed, this is because the school or academy has not sent a copy to the local authority and you should therefore contact the school or academy directly.
