Prospective parents are encouraged to visit the school before applying for admission for their child. Please ring for an appointment.
Admission into School
In line with the policy of Cheshire West and Chester Education Authority, children are admitted to school in the September following their fourth birthday. Our annual planned admission number is set at 15. This means that each year group should contain no more than 15 pupils, but in practice, our year groups may be over this number due to the Admissions Policy we operate. Admissions are handled centrally by the local authority and parents can apply online at:
Admission into Nursery
Application for admission into the foundation stage unit [nursery age] must be made separately from applications for school admission. Application forms are available from the school office  820360 and can be sent for electronically via email: email@example.com We ask that parents fill in a registration form for their children as early as possible, to help us in our forward planning. Decisions on out of area applications will normally be made in the term before the child is due to start school.
Introducing Children to the School
It is extremely important that young children have a relaxed, thoroughly enjoyable and informal introduction to school life and therefore we encourage parents/carers to view the school with their child.
A toddler group meets in our school hall on a Tuesday morning and throughout the year the children spend some time playing with the children in Foundation Stage. This means that those children transferring into school are already familiar with the surroundings. New starters in our Nursery are invited to spend time in school before starting. The majority of children who start with us in Reception have attended our Nursery and so are able to make a seamless transition into school.
Children who join us later in their school career are always invited to spend at least half a day in school prior to being admitted and we will assign 'buddies' to new children to ensure that they are welcome in school and soon make friends.
