PRIMARY ADMISSIONS - SEPTEMBER 2020

The primary admissions allocation day will take place on Thursday 16th April. All applicants, whether online or postal, will receive a letter with confirmation of their allocated primary school.

 

All allocation letters are being sent out, by 1st class post, on Wednesday 15th April and therefore applicants should receive confirmation of their allocation on Thursday 16th April.

 

Online applicants will also receive an allocation confirmation email on the 16th April, as well as their letter.

 

We urge parents not to call the Admissions Team until they have received their email or letter and/or have been to the website below to see if their query can be answered there.

 

A lot of information and FAQs, for example regarding the appeals process, can be found on the webpage https://www.knowsley.gov.uk/residents/education-and-schools/apply-for-a-school-place/annual-school-admission-procedures-september-2020, which has now been fully updated and expanded in light of the current situation.

 

Additional information regarding transition arrangements cannot be finalised at this moment.

 

School Closure

School is closed at the moment to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus. We are open for critical worker children but please make sure you only use us as a last resort. Your children are safer at home.

Maths At Home

We had over 80 families attend our Maths at Home Workshop this week. It was fantastic to see so many parents supporting their children apply their maths skills to games, cooking, time and building. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and have lots of ideas of what to do at home. We'd love you to tweet anything maths you do this weekend!

A huge thank you to Mrs Kendall for organising it and all the teaching assistants that made sure the afternoon was a huge success.

The handout is available on our letter page. Photos from the day can be found in our gallery

It was wonderful to see so many of our parents and children joining us for our first work review last week (25.11.19) This is what some of our parents said;

'I think looking at the books with our children is great idea. Both parents and kids really look forward to it!"
'This is amazing! It's a big opportunity for parents and children to learn together. All staff and parents were so welcoming. Thank you!'
'I hope we can do this every term The children are really enjoying showing their work to friends and parents.'​
