Alderley Edge Community Primary School


Children are usually admitted to school into the Infants Department (Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1) in September of the school year during which they become five.
Starting school for the first time is a very important step for both the child and the parent/carer.  We feel it is important that you get to know us and the school.  For this reason we would always like you to visit our school before your child starts school.  Please contact school to make an appointment to meet Mrs Walsh (Headteacher) who will explain the school’s core values, aims and the way we operate on a day to day basis.  She will also give you an opportunity to tour the school during the school day.
For an appointment contact  the School Office using the details form our contact page.
In addition to looking around the school with the Headteacher, new Reception Parents are invited to an evening meeting during the Summer Term prior to children starting school.  We will also ask you to complete a child profile which helps us to gain additional information about your child.  Information is also sought from your child’s pre-school setting. Arrangements are made for your child to make three pre-school visits to promote as smooth and trouble-free induction  as possible.
Cheshire East Council are responsible for Reception admission procedures and the school follows all the Cheshire East Council Admission Procedures and Policies.
