Getting your child into Staining School

The school caters for boys and girls from the age of 4+ until they are 11 years old, when they transfer to High School. The admission number approved by the Governors for this school in the Academic Year 2018/2019 is 35. Parents wishing their children to attend the school should visit or telephone the school to register their interest. It is important to note that even if you already have a child in school you still need to register your interest by completing and returning an application form for any younger siblings. There is no automatically guaranteed place for younger siblings. On completing the application form, you will be asked to give three preferences for schools. If there are too many first preferences, the criteria below will apply. If your application is not successful, you will then be offered your second or third preference.

Preference will be given to children in the following way:
1. Children who already have a brother or sister in the school.
2. Children with special medical or social considerations.
3. The distance of the home in relation to this and other

County and Controlled schools, where space is available.

Appeals Procedure:

If, for any reason, you have asked for your child to be admitted and been refused, you may appeal against the decision by contacting the Area Admissions Officer at Area Education Office North, P.O. Box 606, Whitecross Education Centre, Quarry Road, Lancaster LA 1 3SQ (tel 01524 581112), asking for your case to be taken to the Appeals Committee. You would then be asked to appear before a panel to state your case.
