Birchwood C of E Primary  is an inclusive school. We have a welcoming community and embrace the diversity that children can bring. Admission into our school’s reception class is managed by Warrington Borough Council’s admissions department and details can be found on their website.

Thirty children are admitted into our Reception class each year. Children can also be admitted into our other classes if there are spare places. The Local Authority may admit a child with a Statement of SEN or EHC Plan if Birchwood C of E is the mainstream school identified as most able to meet the child’s Special Educational Needs.
