At High Legh Primary, our admissions are controlled by Cheshire East Coulcil.  Children are usually admitted into formal school in the September of the year they turn five. Children start their school experience in the Foundation Stage (Reception Class).

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 Tottle (our head teacher) who will explain the school’s core values, aims and the way we operate on a day to day basis and will also give you an opportunity to tour the school during the school day.

 In addition to looking around the school, new Reception Parents are invited to a 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 pre-school visits to promote as smooth transition as possible.
