Admissions Policy

Applying For a Place at This School

Kirkby Church of England is a voluntary controlled primary school where we welcome all applicants.  We welcome visits to the school by families who may be interested in applying – just give us a ring on 0151 477 8510 and we can make an appointment for you to come and see us.

This is a popular school and sometimes it isn’t always possible to offer places to all who apply. If there are more applicants than places, the school has an admissions policy that is used to decide who has priority for places.

School Admission Policy

The admission policy for 2016/17 is printed in the local authority’s admissions booklet which is available on the Knowsley School Admissions website;-


Paper copies are available from school. The booklet gives you all the information you’ll need to apply for school places.

Reception Class

Applications for places in the reception class are made between September and January each year. So applications for September 2016 are made no later than mid-January 2016 and those for September 2017 by mid-January 2017. It’s really important to apply on time.

Details of how to apply and other useful information are given in the admission booklet. (If you live in another borough, contact your home authority for details of which form to use.)

Applications at Other Times

If you are moving to this area and are interested in a place for your child, please get in touch with the school. There is an In-Year application form to complete which gives you notes and contact details. This is also available from the Knowsley School Admissions Team (see above).

Nursery Admissions

We take pupils into the nursery on a termly basis – usually the term following the child’s third birthday. There is a local authority nursery booklet which includes the application form available on the Knowsley School Admissions website;-


or from the school. You can use this form wherever you live.

NB Obtaining a place in the nursery does not give your child any priority for admission to reception class – you still need to apply for a reception place at the right time.

If you have any queries about how to apply for this school, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or call in. The Knowsley School Admissions team  can also assist with general advice.
