A crash involving a school coach and a silver Mercedes happened on the A41 near the Perton crossroads just after 8.05am. Some children suffered minor injuries according to Staffordshire police but none requiring medical treatment.
The bus was believed to be a Hills coach carrying children to Adams Grammar School in Newport.
The driver of the Mercedes and the driver of the bus suffered slight injuries and are being assessed by paramedics at the scene.
Police officers have notified the school so parents can be informed and alternative transport has been arranged to get the children to school.
The collision is currently blocking the road and motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible.
Police are appealing for help finding a woman who has been missing from the Bruntwood area of Staffordshire for a fortnight.
Lucy Jane Green, 32, of Park Road, was last seen on Friday, January 10th, at around 9:50am and was reported missing two days later.
Lucy is white, 5'4" tall, with short, dark-brown hair.
She was last seen wearing a navy waxed-type jacket and sometimes wears brown framed glasses.
A spokesperson for Staffordshire Police said:
"We consider Lucy to be vulnerable and we are concerned for her welfare. Extensive searches are underway to locate her and we would ask that anyone who has seen her, or had any contact, to get in touch."
Police bosses in Staffordshire have welcomed news that a sergeant from the force has been nominated for a national bravery award.
Chairman of the Staffordshire Police Federation, Andy Adams, said Sgt Rob Bateman was a credit to the force and had "acted on instinct" when tackling a man who was about to set himself alight in Longton Police Station, potentially causing a deadly explosion.
Sgt Bateman thoroughly deserves this recognition. It highlights the inherent dangers that police officers encounter on a daily basis and without any warning whatsoever.
His instinct as a police officer took over, allowing him to act quickly and decisively without any thought for his own personal safety.
He should be extremely proud.
He is a credit to his family and to Staffordshire Police.

A police sergeant who tackled an arsonist and stopped a potentially deadly explosion at a Staffordshire police station has been nominated for a national bravery award.
Sgt Rob Bateman was on duty at Longton Police Station in Stoke-on-Trent one night in September 2011 when a man walked in with five litres of petrol, and proceeded to pour it all over himself and the floor.
The man tried to set himself and the station alight with a cigarette lighter - but was foiled by the quick-thinking Sgt Bateman who, having walked into the room just as the man tried to ignite himself, immediately discharged his CS gas spray into the man's face and wrestled him out of the station.
Despite being weakened by petrol fumes and his eyes affected by the CS gas, he managed to seize the lighter and restrain the man until backup arrived.
Had the man been successful, police say the explosion would have killed him, Sgt Bateman and two members of the public who were also in the building at the time.
He has now been nominated for a national Police Bravery Award for his efforts.
A senior police officer has said he hopes raids carried out today across the Midlands will "send a message" to criminal gangs.
Dawn raids were carried out today as part of investigations into crimes committed between May and July in Nuneaton, Sutton Coldfield, Norton in Stourbridge, as well as Rugeley and Fradley in Staffordshire.
Asst Ch Cons Nick Baker, from Staffordshire Police, said some of the crimes were violent armed robberies, while others involved stealing high-powered cars then using them to commit other crimes.
This detailed and painstaking investigation is focused on a group suspected of being involved in violent robberies across the Midlands.
They are also suspected of stealing high powered cars in house burglaries then using these vehicles to commit further crimes.
I hope this sends a message to the criminals that we have the skills, capability and determination to tackle organised crime like this.
