Every term we have a visit from an external advisor to discuss the teaching and learning in school with us.

These are the notes from the last visit in October:


Leadership partner visit coincided with The Exhibition which is an interactive display and celebration of all pupils’ work across school. The writing quality was of a very high standard and work evidenced cross curricular enriched provision throughout. It also successfully engaged the wider community in celebration of pupils’ work.

Senior managers showed a collective impact on school improvement through analysis of data and planned next steps in learning. They are also identifying groups exceeding expectations across topic work which is further impacting on wider subject standards.

The governors know their school well and are robust in the drive for improvement.

Wider subject planning starts from what the pupils know often higher than expected standards further strengthening the wider curriculum.

School has a vibrant feel with pupils highly motivated and engaged in their learning.

Next steps in learning are clearly identified and pupils respond to deepen their learning and understanding.

Moderation procedures are clear and timely ensuring accuracy across the year groups and high expectations.

Goostrey is a high performing school who are driven to continually improve ensuring the best outcomes for the pupils



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. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our Outstanding school!

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.

We have strong links with our local pre-school.  Click here to be redirected to their website.
