Admission to Reception is through Stockport MBC in the autumn term of the previous academic year i.e. the September before your child becomes five.

We have 60 places available for school admission in September 2018 and further details of the admission procedure can be found here. In September 2017 we welcomed 56 pupils into Reception, 42 of whom had put us as their first preference. All admissions to the school (for both Nursery places and Reception places) must be completed on-line.

Details regarding applications for Nursery, Primary and Secondary places can be found here.  You are required to express up to six preferences but we’d be very happy if Cheadle Heath was at the top of your list!

You can check to see if you live within our catchment area by typing in your postcode HERE. Please note, it is not only children within catchment who are accepted for places at our school, especially with the intake rising from 30 to 60.

Children have a range of needs, including physical or sensory difficulties, language difficulties and emotional / behavioural difficulties. We always endeavour to meet the needs of individual children and most children find their needs can be met within a mainstream school. Some children, however, may have additional needs which require additional support; for example a learning difficulty or a disability that means they find it harder to learn than other children in their age group.  Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENDCO) will help you with any concerns during your child’s time at Cheadle Heath Primary School.

If your child has special educational needs you can read more about the admissions process here.



If you are moving into the area, moving between schools or a social worker applying for a looked after child then please follow this guidance.
