Disley Guide 2017


DISLEY PRIMARY SCHOOL “Pupils' attitudes to learning are outstanding” (Ofsted) Disley Primary School is a very special place to be. We pride ourselves on being a happy, caring school where each child is valued as an individual. We provide a stimulating learning environment which allows every child to fulfil his/her potential. Ofsted said, “Pupils’ excellent behaviour contributes to the school’s harmonious and positive ethos……pupils’ attitudes to learning are outstanding, and are a significant reason for their excellent outcomes”. Disley Primary School is a large, unique building with a combination of traditional classrooms and more open, shared teaching areas. We are a growing school, serving the families of Disley and neighbouring communities, and currently have just over 200 pupils on roll, aged 4 to 11. We enjoy a close relationship with Disley village, including the churches and local businesses. There are strong links with the Disley Under 5’s Playgroup, who are on site, and with Poynton High School. Visits to the school are welcome by arrangement with Mrs Heather Taylor, Headteacher. Telephone 01625 383070, e-mail or visit our web-site at 28

SDisley has two recreation grounds which have play areas for under 12 year olds. The Arnold Rhodes Recreation Ground is near the White Lion public house on Buxton Road and the Newtown Playing Fields which has a play area and full sized football pitch and is located opposite the entrance to the Peveril Estate on Buxton Road. There is also a small play area at Bentside, maintained by Cheshire East Council. On Station Approach there is a recently refurbished multi-purpose ball court and shelter where young people can gather to talk or play football/ basketball. In addition there is the Memorial Park on Buxton Road West. This small area, close to the railway station, has been restored by PRIDE volunteers, whose efforts have resulted in Disley receiving several awards. There are benches and a picnic bench available. There are three allotment sites in Disley, all administered by the Parish Council. These are located at Hagg Bank, Springfield and Newtown. For details of renting allotments please contact the Parish Council on 01663 762726. Behind the Ram’s Head, there are two crown green bowling greens, whilst further along the A6, near the entrance to Lyme Park, is Disley Dam which provides fishing for local anglers who are members of the Disley & New Mills Angling Club. The Peak Forest Canal is popular for sailing, canoeing and walks along the towpath. At Marple, the canal is joined by the Macclesfield Canal whilst at Whaley Bridge, there is a branch to the Bugsworth Basin which has, in recent years, been restored. Disley Towpath Action Group volunteers maintain and improve the towpath on the Disley stretch of the Peak Forest Canal. The disabled are able to gain access to the port and Recreation canal where it passes under Redhouse Lane. There is also an active Footpaths Society organising walks and maintaining footpaths in the area. Disley Parish Paths maps are available from Disley Parish Council Office. More information on walking in and around Disley is available in the special walking feature in this guide. On Jacksons Edge Road is Disley Amalgamated Sports Club, formed in 1899, providing a beautiful setting for a range of sports including badminton, cricket, football, lacrosse, squash and tennis. Facilities include sports pitches, badminton, squash and tennis courts, a fully-equipped gym, AstroTurf 5-a-side football pitch and a bar and function room. Membership is open to all and new members are very welcome. There are wellorganised coaching and competitive opportunities, especially for junior members, run by qualified coaches. On the same side of the village is Disley Golf Club, which was established in 1889. The course is still in its original location along Stanley Hall Lane, off Jacksons Edge Road. The original members met at the Ram’s Head, but soon moved to a purpose built club house at the corner of Stanley Hall Lane and Jacksons Edge Road. In 1979 the club built a new club house on the edge of the course that offers a home-from-home atmosphere, with a fine snooker table and lounges, which, together with an active social programme, attract many non-playing members. The views from the golf course are amongst the best from any inland golf course in Britain stretching from the Cheshire Plains and the Welsh Hills in the West and the Pennines in the East. The clubhouse can be booked for weddings, parties, christenings, and funeral commemorations, catering for up to 120 guests. Contact the club on 01663-764001 (option 4). 29
