Welcome to Goostrey School
We have successfully renewed our Eco Schools Green Flag award. Two assessors spent half a day talking to and questioning the children on the Eco council about all that we do at Goostrey school.
There are 9 areas covered, (energy, waste, school grounds, biodiversity, water, litter, healthy living, transport, global perspective) and we have had to focus on 5 of them (energy, waste, school grounds, biodiversity, global perspective) during the last 2 years since our first green flag was awarded.
The children were really amazing with the assessors! They answered their questions with confidence and enthusiasm as they led them on a tour of everything inside and outside school! The assessors saw the hall with all the work about Southeast Asia, the pond, wildflower area, South African garden, natural History Museum, vegetable garden, insect hotel, woodland classroom, tree trail and willow tunnel. They heard all about our exhibition, our twin school, our Eco day, our Fairtrade events, things we recycle, energy recording, and much more besides!
Well done to the children and to all the adults who have helped us to achieve this award. Thank you

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 the individual, caring environment associated with a village school whilst being large enough to offer a full programme of curriculum and extra-curriculum activities. You are very welcome to come and look round our school. To arrange a visit please telephone or email the school and we will be happy to organise this for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Outstanding school!
This is an outstanding school. Excellent leadership ensures that pupils achieve extremely well, attain exceptionally high standards and develop into very positive and concerned young citizens. A comment that aptly sums up parents' views is, 'Goostrey School is a superb place for children to learn in an extremely happy atmosphere.' (OFSTED report 2007).
School Data Dashboard is a useful tool to measure school performance. However, it should be used in conjunction with other comparative data and reports to give a whole school view.
Thank you to all families for their continued support, together we make Goostrey school a very special place to be.
