Reception Admissions

Admission into Reception

Full time places in Reception classes are available in September of the academic year within which the child becomes five years old. Although parents have the right to express a preference for Violet Way Academy, there is no guarantee of a place being offered. Admissions into Reception are managed by Staffordshire Local Authority. In some cases there may be more applications than there are places available. Admission when oversubscribed is determined by the oversubscription criteria detailed in the Admissions policy. 

You can make an application online for schools at the normal age of entry via the Staffordshire Admissions website: Admission to primary and middle schools - Staffordshire County Council

Non-Staffordshire parents should apply through their Home Local Authority.
