Please do not hesitate to contact us directly if you need more advice in relation to the admissions process as it can sometimes be a little confusing as we are so close to the Derbyshire border.

If you are applying for a place for a new starter (i.e. Reception pupil) then you apply to the authority which is in line with your postcode.

If you are moving to us from an infant school (i.e. requesting a place for a Year 3 September start) then you apply to the authority which is in line with your postcode. 

If you are applying for a place in - year (i.e. neither of the above situations apply) then you should contact Cheshire East admissions, irrespective of your postcode.

In exceptional circumstances, when for example a child is struggling to attend school due to Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues, we are open to discussions around phased starts to support the transition into school as we understand that starting school / moving to a new school can be a very challenging and traumatising time for some of our little people. Requests are dealt with on an individual basis.
