Admissions Overview

Admissions to Horninglow Primary are managed through Staffordshire County Council. 

Pupils may be admitted to the school full-time at the start of the school year following their fourth birthday.

It is intended that the number of pupils admitted to Horninglow Primary School will not exceed 30.

If the number of pupils seeking admission exceeds the number of places available, then the following order of priority will be used:

  • Pupils whose statement of special needs names the school

  • Pupils living within the catchment area of the school

  • Pupils who would, in the first year to which the application relates, have an elder brother or sister in attendance at the school

Pupils who satisfy both of the following tests:

  1. They are distinguished from the majority of other applicants either on medical grounds which are supported by a medical report, obtained by parents, specifying the medical advantage of the child attending the preferred school compared with the normal catchment area school or by other exceptional circumstances material to the choice of school (I.e. the circumstances of the child, not the economic or social circumstances of the parent):

  2. They would suffer hardship if they were unable to attend the school. Other pupils arranged in order of priority according to how near their home addresses are to the school.
