Welcome to Cledford Primary School

Image result for starting school


Starting school is a major step in any child's life. It is an exciting time and to help make the experience successful we arrange an induction programme of visit for pupils before they become full time members of the school community.

If you would like to visit Cledford Primary School with a view to sending your child/ren here, please contact our school office to arrange a time and date.

Details of the current admission arrangements are available from the Cheshire East website:

If you live in England, you must apply on your 'home' local authority's application form (i.e. the local authority where you live) even if you are applying for a school maintained by another authority.


In Year Admissions

Applications for school places 'in year' are for admission after the first day of the school year into any year group. You will need to complete the in year application form which will be forwarded to your school/s of choice.

Please contact 0300 123 5012 with any queries for applications for a school within Cheshire East. If you wish to apply for a school in another local authority, you will need to contact the relevant authority to find out how to make an application.


September 2024 Applications

You can now apply online for a school place in September 2024 to:

  • start school in reception
  • transfer to a secondary school

Please note: if you are not resident in Cheshire East, but live in another English Local Authority, you must apply via your home local authority even if your preference is for a Cheshire East school.
