Welcome to Goostrey School
School closed on Friday 20th March for normal teaching and learning. We hope this will be a short term closure and things will be back to normal as quickly as possible. School will be open from Monday 23rd March for vulnerable children, and children whose parents identify as key workers and have no child care at home. We intend to continue with the weekly newsletter, just to touch base. Please keep sending us children’s achievements for the newsletter for us all to celebrate. These might be learning to sew a button on, bake a cake, work out the change for the shopping, create a mega structure (e.g. Lego), conduct a science experiment, learn a new tune on their instrument, teach a sibling something new etc.
There will be some staff in school, on a rota basis and certain members, including Miss Atkins and Mrs Schurer-Lewis in every day. If you have any questions around the work set please email the class teacher and they will respond within 24 hours providing they are well enough. We will continue to email and message parents with information as appropriate. Decisions still need to be made regarding certain events next term and we will review these after the Easter break.
We have not left you and we still remain at the heart of this wonderful community.
Everyone is determined to do all they can to support key workers and help the country get through this pandemic as quickly as possible. We will, as always have the children at the centre of everything we do and keep in touch
Goostrey Community Primary School is situated in the centre of a thriving village at the heart of rural Cheshire. The size of our school means we can create an individual, caring environment, whilst being large enough to offer a full programme of curriculum and extra-curriculum activities.
If you would like an individual tour of the school, please contact us to make an appointment, once we re-open.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
Thank you to all families for their continued support, together we make Goostrey school a very special place to be.

At Goostrey Community Primary School are aware that keeping our children hydrated helps them to perform at their very best throughout the school day. We invest in 4 Watercoolers from AquAid which gives our school the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, as for each machine we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to The Africa Trust. Through our contributions to The Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well. Our school's name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.
