Should be a rotary chrome nut on each side of the bridge.  Just turn those clockwise until the action suits.  You could slacken the strings off a bit first to relieve the pressure on the thread.  If you go too far, just turn the anti-clockwise.  But you will definitely need to slacken the strings if you want to do that.

When I had a Stagg it was set very high when I bought it and I lowered it to the more or less "normal" DB string height of 5-6mm for the G string and about 8-9mm for the E, measured at the end of the fingerboard and it worked fine for me.You might want to check the height at the nut too.Paul made a good point about slacking off the strings a bit before you use the adjusters, it will make it a lot easier.

Of course the condition of the neck and fingerboard, what type of music you play and the condition and type of strings should be considered also.

If you Google around a bit you will find a lot of threads about setting up a Stagg and there is a lot of good info out there.

Good luck and have fun!😊
