Thank you for showing an interest in your child being admitted to our school. Please come and visit – come and see our happy children learning and exploring together. Please call the school office on 01260 272528 or email email@example.com to make an appointment to meet the Head teacher and have a tour of the school.
We welcome all and you do not need to have any religion or attend church to be part of our Astbury family. Our admission policy reflects the Church of England views that “schools are established primary for the communities they are located in. They are inclusive and serve equally those of other faiths and those with no faith.”
Astbury School has a single intake into the Reception class each year. Children must have reached four years old prior to the 1st September in the year of admission.
Applications for older children to be admitted into other classes will be considered individually and are dependent upon space being available. Please contact the school office.
The Head teacher will explain our admission policy to you in full detail and if you are able to visit, will take you on a tour of the school. This is your opportunity to ask questions or raise any concerns you may have regarding the educational provision for your child. You will be able to observe pupils in the course of their school day.
After your visit, you need to apply for a place for admission into the reception year through Cheshire East at https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/schools/admissions/admissions.aspx
For admission into Y1 - Y6, you will need to apply at https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/schools/admissions/admissions.aspx. Your application will be processed and sent to school. The School will inform you of the outcome of your application. If places are available then contact details sheets and forms prior to school admission will need to be completed.
Visits are not a compulsory part of the admissions process and will not effect decisions on whether a place can be offered at our school.
