Welcome to Goostrey School

Following the High Court ruling regarding term time holiday absences, Cheshire East have given us the following information:

‘the Council is reviewing its practice with regards to the issuing of Penalty Notices for term time holiday absence as a matter of priority  and is seeking urgent guidance from the DfE.’


With regards to parents who have previously received a fine and  may ask if they are going to receive refunds, Cheshire East have said:  ‘the Council is taking urgent legal advice on the implications of the ruling.’


Our Mid-day Team needs additional members!

We are seeking enthusiastic, caring people to join our outstanding school, supervising our pupils over the lunchtime break. This is a rewarding role, in which you would play an important part in supporting our school values.  

Working hours are from 12 noon to 1 15 PM, Monday - Friday.  However, if working 5 days per week would not suit applicants, we would be happy to employ new team members for a minimum of 2 days per week.

Please contact our School Business Manager,  Mrs J Schurer-Lewis on 01270 685658, or via e-mail admin@goostrey.cheshire.sch.uk to request an application form and job description.

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.

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.
