Foundation Class Starters - September 2022
New Starter Evening
This date has been emailed out to parents of Foundation Class 2022. Please contact Miss Hassall if you have not received this communication.
School Starting Age
If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, they will be eligible to start school in September 2022.
Most children will start school in the September, after they are 4 years old. Children reach compulsory school age at the start of the term after their 5th birthday. If you wish to delay your child starting school, you must contact Cheshire East Council directly.
You will need to apply for your child's school place in the September, the year before they are due to start.
