We still have Nursery and Reception places available.
Please contact the school office if you are interested in a place.


This section of our website outlines the admission process, a process which is undertaken by Stockport MBC.  Details regarding applications for Nursery, Primary, Secondary and in year transfers can be found hereAll school places, including mid year transfers, must be applied for online. 


We have a 40 part time place Nursery Class with caring, experienced staff who offer exciting first hand experiences for children .  Nursery places are offered on a two and a half full day basis.  We also offer 15 hour free entitlement places for children usually in the September before their 4th birthday.

We encourage our children to explore both the internal and external environment and encourage them to challenge themselves, be creative and be confident when encountering new experiences. It is important that we build a close partnership with parents / carers and all the staff are keen to share and celebrate your child’s progress with you.  All Nursery places must be applied for online here.


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 2022 and further details of the admission procedure can be found on the Stockport Council website here. In September 2021 we welcomed 41 pupils into Reception, 31 of whom had put us as their first preference. All admissions to the school  must be completed online, there are no paper copies available. 

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. You are asked to express up to six preferences but we’d be very happy if Cheadle Heath was at the top of your list!

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. If you wish to transfer schools you are welcome to come and view our school but please note that all in-year admissions are handled by the Local Authority.
