The school has an Admissions Policy and Procedures written by the Governors that are reviewed annually. We have one admission date and all children are admitted in the September of the academic year in which they are five. Parents/Carers are encouraged to inform the school if they are considering applying for a place for their child.

An online application form via Cheshire West and Chester Council, who deal with all admissions for schools, will need to be completed and returned to the Admissions Office by the required date. An allocation letter will be sent notifying you as to the success of your application. Parents/Carers will have to accept/decline the places allocated by the required date and any appeals will need to be notified before the deadline.

Pre-school liaison and preparation includes:

- visits by the class teacher to pre-school establishments
- parents’ meetings and coffee afternoons in the summer term prior to starting
- opportunities to meet the Headteacher and other staff and find out further information about the school
- children spending time in the classroom prior to them starting full time
- invitations to parents and children to attend Open Days, Sports etc
- helpful leaflets and booklets to support your child starting school.

Admission to other year groups depends on availability of places but all parents/carers and children are welcome to visit school. Please contact our school directly, if you are interested in applying for a place.  Applications can also be made directly to the Admissions Office within Cheshire West and Chester Council.
