Admissions

Starting School in Reception

If your child is due to start school in reception, you will need to complete an application form which is available from Cheshire East Council. This process needs to be completed the year before your child is due to start school. Even if you have an older child who already attends the school, or you live within the school catchment area, an application must still be completed. Please note: All parents and carers have a legal duty to ensure that once their child reaches statutory school age they must receive efficient full-time education.

September 2016 admissions

Your child will start school in the reception class in the September following their 4th birthday. If your son or daughter was born between 1st September 2011 and 31st August 2012, you should apply for a school place from September 2015 for admission in 2016. Parents/Carers can make their applications online on the Cheshire East Website at:

https://schooladmissions.cheshireeast.gov.uk/ENROL/Website/default.aspx

The Local Authority Co-ordinated Scheme 2017/18, and Admission Arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools in Cheshire East for 2017/18, were determined by Cheshire East Cabinet on Tuesday 9 February 2016.  This is in line with the statutory requirement of the School Admissions Code 2014 paragraph 2.20, that determination must be by 28 February 2016.

Applications for In Year Transfers

Parents of pupils wishing to join the school at times other than the beginning of their child’s reception year, are welcome to contact the school office to arrange a visit to the school. During this visit the Principal, or member of the senior leadership team, will be happy to take you on the tour of the school and discuss any questions that you may have.

In addition to this, you will also need to complete an application form that can be obtained from the Cheshire East website at:
