The William Amory Primary School is for children aged 4 to 11. Admissions for those entering school for the first time are done via the Staffordshire County Council Admissions Service.
There are three ways to apply for a place in our school.
- by post. Download the application form and send it to School Admissions (details below),
- email. Again, download the form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org,
- applications for a place mid way through the year (ie. your child is presently at school somewhere else) are done through the school. Please book an appointment to see Mr Wilken, the headteacher.
Before completing this form you should read all of the information contained within the “Information for Parents” Booklet which is available in school, we’re afraid there is no electronic version to download.
The address is: The School Admissions and Transport Service, Tipping Street, Stafford, ST16 2DH. The deadline is around mid January.
Choosing the right school.
We know how momentous the decision of which school to choose is. Are its standards high enough? Will it challenge enough or will it, perhaps, be too challenging? What’s the behaviour like? Do they do sports?
All these questions, and many more, make it very difficult to choose which is the school for you. And even more difficult if this is the first time you’ve come to this point. Ofsted and league tables can help but they don’t answer every question – not by a long way.
We cannot stress the importance of visiting a school. This gives you a taste of the school – to get the feel and the atmosphere that no statistic can provide. We always welcome parents to come and visit the school, it only takes a phone call to arrange an appointment.
By visiting the classrooms and seeing how we get the children learning, we hope to answer all of those questions and perhaps a few more. You will experience our vision, our ideas and our ethos as you look around and all of this will, I am sure, give you a much clearer idea of what our school stands for.
We are very proud of our school and that we have a lot to offer. We hope that you will see this and want to be part of the family that is The William Amory Primary School. But more than that, if ours is not the environment that you wish for your child, then you can continue until your search in the knowledge that there will be a local school that will fit.
On top of this, please look at our school information on the website (such as OUR TEACHING and OUR PERFORMANCE AND OFSTED) to help you build up a picture of our school.
Our School follows the policy and procedures as laid out by Staffordshire County Council admissions. Please visit this page for more statutory information. Please visit the SCC Admissions website for further details.
