Information


All Saints Academy prides itself on being an inclusive school. Our core values are love, respect and kindness and these permeate all aspects of school life. We aim to provide a caring and supportive environment in which your child can achieve in a wide range of areas. We provide a broad and balanced timetable and our aim is to develop independent, self-disciplined, happy children with a love of learning who have acquired all the attitudes, knowledge and skills to enable them to fulfil their potential both here and in later life.

Joining our Academy is a really exciting time and you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of subjects and activities. Forest School, sports, music, dance, art, drama, 50 things to do before you’re 9 and science are some of the opportunities and experiences that are waiting for you at All Saints Academy.

Joining Nursery

Children can apply to the school office to join Nursery from the term after their third birthday.

Our Nursery hours can be tailored to suit your family's needs. The Nursery children quickly adapt to our school routines and this really helps them with transition into reception, as they are already familiar with our staff and the other children.

We can provide the 30 hours as well as flexible wrap around before and after school care.

Nursery Education Funding hours are available (15 hours) as well as 30 hour term time places. Additional sessions outside funding will be charged at £5 per hour or £1.25 per ¼ hour and should be booked by contacting Mrs Goodwin in the school office.  Sessions outside funded hours will be charged through Parent Pay.

Joining Reception

Children can apply to join Reception the September after they turn four. If your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, he or she will be starting Reception in our Academy from September 2021. Applications for admission to Reception class are managed by Staffordshire County Council. To apply for a place in Reception at All Saints please apply online via the following link:

We offer a ‘move up day’ in July, where children already in Nursery at All Saints move up to Reception, and children at other nursery settings can have a taster day at our academy. Children in other year groups also ‘move up’ with the Year Four children visiting their next school. We also operate an open door policy whereby with an appointment from the school office a tour of the school can be given at a convenient time.

Anyone wishing to join All Saints at any other time throughout the year will require an in year admission form from their current school, but will be warmly welcomed.
