If you would like to apply for a place in the Reception class at Saint Mary's in September 2019, you must complete the Local Authority application form available from the Cheshire East website:

Applications must be submitted to the Local Authority by 15th January of the year in which you would like your child to join Reception.


Our Admissions Policy for children applying for a place in Reception for September 2019 is attached below (Admissions Policy 2019 to 2020).


If you wish your application to Saint Mary's to be considered under the religious criteria of ‘baptised Catholic children’, you MUST also complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF), which is attached below, and return this directly to the school by the closing date of 15th January.  Proof of baptism must also be returned directly to the school with the Supplementary Information Form.   


If you are considering transferring your child from another school to Saint Mary's, please contact the school in the first instance to discuss your needs.  Please telephone 01260 274690 or email:   It may not be possible to offer you a place if the class your child would be entering is already full.  Please see our Admissions Policy (below) for more information.

Unfortunately, not all applicants for a place in the Reception class for September 2019 have been offered a place, as we received more than 30 applications, and 30 is the maximum number by law that can be admitted to a Reception class with one teacher.


If you have been offered a place, please accept or decline the offer sent to you by the local authority by the deadline of 30th April 2019.


This will enable us to offer places to children on the waiting list if you decide to decline your offer of a place.  Thank you.
