In-Year Admissions

There are currently a limited number of spaces in some of our year groups.  If you are interested in your child moving to Winsford High Street Community Primary School, please give us a ring and we will be able to advise you of the availability of places, the process to be followed and arrange a visit to the school for you to look around.

Further details on the admissions process can be found here.

All applications for in-year transfers should be made through the Cheshire West and Chester admissions process which can be found on the link above.  The school aims to advise parents of the results of an application for an in-year place within 10 school days. If we are unable to offer a place, we will advise of the reason and provide you with details of how to appeal.

With the exception of children of armed services personnel who are applying for a place due to a new posting, children must be able to start at the school within 20 days of the place being offered.

Once a place has been accepted, we will advise the school from which you are moving, and liaise with them for the transfer of data and information.  We will also ask you to complete a registration form in order that we can ensure your information is correct. Your child should continue to attend their current school until the last school day before they start at Winsford High Street CP School.

If the number of applicationsfor admissions to the school exceeds the school's intended admission limit, the following criteria (in order of priority) will be used to allocate the available places:

• Parental wishes.

• Current family association ie. a sibling in the infant school at the time of entry.

• Health reasons (for which a medical certificate may be required).

• Nearness of the child’s home and ease of access to school.

Pupils transferring into the school are admitted using the same criteria.
