Admissions to School

School Admission Arrangements


Owing to our recent expansion, we are able to offer places in all year groups. Please contact headteacher Mr A Brady: for further information and to arrange a viewing.


As Chelford CE Primary School is a Voluntary Controlled school, Cheshire East Council is the Admission Authority for all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools within the county, therefore Chelford CE Primary School is bound by the LA policy for admissions. Admission arrangements for schools maintained by the local authority, together with Academies and Free Schools, must comply with the School Admissions Code as amended December 2014.


Details of Cheshire East admission arrangements and policies can be found by clicking on the Cheshire East Website link below or by downloading the 'Applying for School Places' document:
