Joining Our School

Applications for Reception places for the start of the academic year are made through Cheshire West and Chester Council. You can apply online at:

 www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/admissions

Children join our Reception class in the September after their fourth birthday.

As this is a major step for both child and parents alike we invite your child to come into school one afternoon a week for 4 weeks during the summer term preceding their entry. This enables them to become acquainted with our Foundation Stage Teacher, and to meet new friends so that the transition from home to school life is as smooth as possible.

Parents are also invited to attend a meeting where they can be introduced to the staff and find out relevant information prior to their child starting school. We also offer an Open Day in the Summer Term for prospective parents.

Applications for joining the school after the academic year has already started are made by contacting the school directly. 

As we have recently grown from mixed year group classes to single year classes, we now have spaces to admit more children to our school. 

Parents are encouraged to make arrangements to visit the school before applying to admit their children. You and your child are very welcome to come have a tour of our school, meet our staff and pupils and experience first hand what Eaton has to offer. 

Please contact our office for an appointment at admin@eaton.cheshire.sch.uk or 01829732731
