Welcome to Goostrey School
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.
Thank you to all families for their continued support, together we make Goostrey school a very special place to be.
Please keep up-to-date with everything that is happening in school by reading our weekly newsletters, all available on this website, under School Information tab. These publications give an overview of the excellent provision the children receive at Goostrey School. To see our school's curriculum intent, implementation and impact statement, please go to the School Information tab above. Should you require paper copies of any information, please contact our School Business Manager.
This summer term is so different to last year and we are delighted to have all the children in school and able to do some of the normal activities and events that the pupils love.
The children will have a sports day this year. It will be without spectators in line with current guidance but at least they will be competing in an afternoon of sport.
The Year 6 production will go ahead and in the spirit of Hollywood it will be filmed for distribution to families.
Our New Starters’ Meeting will be virtual with Mrs Flint holding remote meetings with new families.
There will be a Leavers’ Assembly for the Y6, this may be outside like last year but we will definitely mark the occasion in some way.
We are ensuring that the older children have swimming lessons by hiring a pool for two weeks, on site, complete with swimming coach and life guard—this is a first for Goostrey School!
The classes who were due to go on a residential visit are still going out for an extended day, at the same venue, for an outward-bound experience.
We will have the school photographer in this term, both individual and class photos.
We cannot take any risks at this point, especially after we have come so far and kept the school a safe environment for everyone. Thank you for understanding and thank you to the staff for always looking for ways to enhance the children’s learning experience within the current constraints.
We are hoping to give individual tours of the school to families from September. If you are interested in a place, please contact us then to find out when our open morning is scheduled or to book a visit. More information to follow.
We still have place available in certain year groups. If you are interested in finding out more, please call on 01270 685658.

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.
