Reception Admissions

Parents/Carers are able to either make their school applications online or download application forms through the following page on the Staffordshire County Council Website:


Online applications are now the preferred method of making a preference for schools at the normal age of entry. Parents/Carers who apply online are able to receive email notification of their school place on the national offer day, rather than through the post.


Children may be admitted into our Reception at the beginning of the Autumn Term of the school year in which they reach the age of five, (i.e. a child who reaches the age of four by 31 August may start in the Reception year group in September)

At Squirrel Hayes First School a 'Personalised' approach to learning is at the very heart of all decisions made and actions taken.  All learners regardless of when they join or leave the school are entitled to a positive, stress free and effective induction procedure.  This ensures that all new learners are welcomed and supported appropriately, in order to meet their individual needs through a personalised learning programme.
