Primary School Applications
All applications for a reception class place (Foundation Stage) have to be made to the Primary Admissions Team, either online or by paper application form.  Information regarding applications to school can be found on the Sheffield City Council website (a link to the site can be found at the bottom of this page).

The Primary Admissions Team can also be contacted by telephone: 0114 2735766.

In-Year Admissions
Stannington Infant School participates in the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for in-year admissions.  If a parent of a child on our roll wishes to apply for a transfer to another school, they must obtain a transfer form from the school for completion of Section 2.  The application must then be sent to the Local Authority which will process the application on the parent’s behalf.  The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days.  If the application is refused, the Local Authority will advise on the statutory appeal procedure.  Details of the Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and how in-year applications are managed can be seen at

Families New to the City
For families that are new to the City, they should contact the Children Missing Education Team at or 0114 273 6462 to arrange an appointment to make an admission application.

Visits to the School
