Admissions

Would you like your child to be educated in Tarporley?

If they were born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 they are due to start primary school in 2018 you can apply online at CWAC.

We hold a monthly Play Club ( 9th of the month 9-10am ) for all 2018 new starters where the children have a play in our reception class and get to know their potential teacher.

Our 'Ugly Bug Ball' for Reception 2018 starters will be on 9th October, 2-3pm and all children and parents are welcome, even if you are still deciding which school you would like as your first choice.

Don't worry if you can't make this date, the school is happy to welcome you at anytime. Just telephone to arrange a convenient date.

From September 2018 our school will be able to take 45 pupils in reception. If more than 30-45 children apply and receive a place at Tarporley then we will have two reception classes with no more than 23 children in each class.

Once you have made your decision then applications for Reception places need to be made through the local authority, Cheshire West and Cheshire Council.

For information on admissions please click on www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk (this link will take you to the School Admissions page of Cheshire West and Chester Council).

The Cheshire West and Chester Council's information booklet  "Starting School. Applying for Primary School Places" will also provide you with more information.

Cheshire  West  and  Chester  County  Council  policy  ensures  that  all  children  living  within  a  catchment  area  can  be offered a place at a school near to their home. However, parents can express a preference for a school which is not necessarily local to them. If the preferred school is below its admission limit for the relevant age group a place will be offered.

Where schools are over subscribed the priorities for admission are on the following basis:-

  • Pupils living within the school’s catchment area

  • Pupils with brothers or sisters in the school

  • Pupils for whom personal/domestic circumstances presented by parents justify, in the Authority’s view, admission to a particular school.

  • Pupils living nearest to the school.

In year admissions are now managed by the school.

The admissions of children during the school year is now managed by the school. If you have a child you would like to attend our school please contact Mrs Jan Lovelock or Mrs Jane Taylor in the office on 01244 981230 to inquire if we have any places. They will be able to talk you through the admissions procedure.

If you would like to know more about our school, please feel free to contact us to make an appointment to visit.  We will be delighted to show you around our school.

Tarporley CE Play Club

Once each month our Reception classroom and fantastic outdoor learning spaces will be opened up for younger members of the community to come and enjoy with their parents or family members. Each session will last for 1 hour and there will be juice and biscuits for the children and a well deserved cup of tea for the adults! This is a fantastic opportunity for children to spend time over the year with Mrs Davies and become familiar with the school environment. This makes transition to school a much smoother process with the children already confident in the classroom.
