Welcome to Barlaston First School. It is my great pleasure to welcome you, as the head teacher of the school, to our website. 

“Thank you! What an amazing school where the children are so happy and confident, and achieve well.”

This was a quote from a parent who said goodbye to our school recently, having had all three of her children educated through our caring and nurturing school.

Our school is a very special, nurturing and caring place, please call in and see for yourself!

We are a small village school in Staffordshire with approaching 160 pupils from ages 3-9 years. The children join our school nursery, then filter into our reception class, and leave at the end of year 4. Our children move to Christ Church Academy or Walton Priory Middle School, both in the nearby town of Stone. Our intake consists of children from Barlaston and Wedgwood villages, Stone, Blurton, Trentham, Meir Heath and further afield.

We are a happy school, which is growing in size due to popularity, and we thrive on providing an exciting learning environment where children can grow in confidence and knowledge, and above all, be happy.

We would love to show you around our school. We do not have an official open day, but prefer the personal approach of showing prospective parents and children around individually. Should you wish to view the school, please contact the school office on 01782 372543 to book an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes

John Gordon
