Stockport Local Authority manages the process of our admissions for both nursery and reception. Please refer to the Local Authority admission arrangements at https://www.stockport.gov.uk/topic/nursery-and-school-admissions
Admission to Nursery
Please view the Nursery admissions booklet (Free Early Education and Childcare for 2, 3, and 4 year olds) on Stockport Local Authority website (https://www.stockport.gov.uk/topic/schools-and-education). This booklet outlines the settings available in the Cheadle / Gatley area, the arrangements for applying for a nursery place and the priority criteria for admissions is outlined. Our published admissions number for Nursery is 40 (part-time).
You will need to apply separately for a primary school place, even if your child attends our Nursery. Admission to a nursery class does not give any priority of a place in the reception class at Gatley Primary School.
Admission to Reception
Gatley Primary School follows the Local Authority admission arrangements for primary schools, which is published in the annual booklet from the Children and Young Peoples Directorate. Applying for ‘Primary School Booklet’ is available on line at (www.stockport.gov.uk). A copy of the admissions policy is also available on this link.
The booklet gives further details on the admission criteria for community schools. An application form should be completed on line. A telephone helpline is available on 0845 644 4313. Our school published admission number is 60* for reception.
*Please note: For admission to reception in 2019, the school will be admitting over its published number of 60 to accommodate a growing community.
