We are a one form entry primary school based in Cannock that welcomes children from Reception to Year 6 and we firmly believe we are on an ever learning journey, The Hero’s Journey.

Applying for Reception 2024

All admissions for Reception are handled by the Local Authority (LA) –  Staffordshire County Council. The LA determines the allocation of Reception places based on factors such as children in care, children with brothers and sisters already in school and children with the shortest walking route to school.

Our Open Evenings are being held on the 10th October 2023 and 28th November 2023.  If these dates aren’t suitable please contact the School Office and we can arrange a more suitable time with you.

REAch2 admissions consultation – 6.12.2023 – 31.1.2024

REAch2 Academy Trust (the Trust), as the admission authority for all of its academies as per the admissions code 2021, is consulting on the admission arrangements for all of its schools. It is the responsibility of the Trust to determine the arrangements for all of its schools, ensuring that they are fully compliant with the admissions code 2021 and other statutory legislation, such as the Equalities Act 2010.


On 4 October 2023, the Trust Board approved several variations to the current arrangements, which seek to add clarity to a number of key definitions within the policy. The new policy also includes more information on how parents can access other admissions related information, including in-year admissions, appeals processes, and Fair Access Protocol’s.


The new policies do not propose any change to the school’s existing over-subscription criteria. The new policy seeks to make clear that children within the final category of the over-subscription criteria are ranked by the distance they live from the school. The Trust has therefore re-named this criterion from ‘other children’ to ‘distance’. Children within that criterion will still be ranked in the same way.

The consultation will run from 6  December 2023 to 31 January 2024.
