This website is available from Wednesday 12th September 2019.

What do you need to do?

 

STEP 1

PREPARATION

  • Go to the school open evenings
  • Take a checklist along with you of questions you want to ask.
  • Collect information either from school or from Internet:
  • School prospectus
  • School profile
  • Ofsted report
  • School website
  • Performance tables – available from www.direct.gov.uk
  • Include your child
  • Ask for and consider their opinions and ideas

 

STEP 2

DECISION

Check how closely your child fits the Admission Criteria or Policy – each school has a policy - BE REALISTIC

Over subscription criteria – this is applied if there are more applicants than places

Remember schools criteria differ.  For example, community schools apply different criteria to faith schools

STEP 3

APPLICATION

If you  live within the boundaries of Liverpool City Council Complete the on-line form 

http://www.liverpool.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/admissions

 

  • If you are an ‘out of city’ resident you must apply to your home authority, e.g. Knowsley, Sefton,etc
  • This applies no matter which Primary School your child attends or Secondary School you are interested in
  • You can name schools in other authorities on Liverpool’s application form
  • Check if the schools you are interested in need a direct application.  For example, faith schools and academies. These forms are additional to the local authority application
