In 2021 60 school children can be admitted each academic year.

Veritas opened in 2015 with two Reception classes and one class in Years 1 to 6. We have since grown to a two form entry school and now our school capacity has reached 420.

Details of our Admissions Policy is available below and also from the school office. In accordance with the Academy’s policy, priority is given to looked after and previously looked after children, followed by those children who have older siblings at the school. Priority is then given in order of distance from the school measured in a straight line. Prospective parents are offered a visiting day in the term prior to the school year in which a pupil starts full time education.

If you require any further information or advice, please contact the school office.

Normal Point of Entry

All applications for Reception places are made through Staffordshire County Council who apply our admissions criteria to all applications and notify parents directly of allocated places.

Online applications are now the preferred method of making a preference for schools at the normal age of entry. Last year, around 92% of applications for Secondary and Primary School applications were made online. Parents who apply online are able to receive email notification of their school place on the national offer day, rather than through the post.

For the 2022/2023 academic year applications are open between 1 November 2021 and 15 January 2022.


In-Year Admissions

School tours are available by appointment with the school office.

This will be an opportunity for you to take a tour of the school and meet with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to ask any questions you might have regarding your child’s education. An in-year transfer form will need to be signed by your child’s current school and returned to Veritas Primary Academy before a place will be offered.

More information and the form can be found on the Staffordshire County Council website


If we are able to offer a place to your child you will receive an admission pack from us which will need to be completed before your child's start date. Upon receipt of your completed paperwork we will agree a start date for your child.


Our Nursery accepts children from the term following their 3rd birthday.

You can apply directly to the school by completing the application below and returning to the school office or email to [email protected].

At the beginning of each new term we can admit another cohort, places permitting. We offer parents an opportunity to attend an Open Evening ahead of each admission cohort to view our facilities and meet with the Early Years team.

Veritas Nursery is open Term Time only from 8.45am to 3.15pm.
