Determined Admission Arrangements for Knowsley Schools 2020/21

The council consulted with schools, neighbouring local authorities, church authorities and parents before determining admission arrangements for the 2020/21 intake of nursery, reception and Year 7 pupils (an online consultation was undertaken via this website).

Below are the results of the consultation:

The determined admission policy and admission numbers for Knowsley community primary schools and primary and secondary participating academies.

Voluntary Aided Schools (Catholic and Church of England Schools) are also required to determine their admission arrangements on an annual basis.

The determined admission policies and admission numbers for Voluntary Aided Schools in Knowsley can be accessed from the individual schools and will soon all be available to be accessed on this page, below.

Parents have a right to raise an objection with the Schools Adjudicator if they believe that the policies are not lawful or do not comply with the mandatory elements of the national School Admissions Code. 
Full details of how to raise an objection are given on the DFE website.
Objections must be submitted no later than 15 May 2019.

Also below are the primary and secondary schemes. These documents give the arrangements for applying for places, dates, processes etc. for entry to school in the 2020/21 school year.

All these practical details are published in September 2019 in the more user-friendly form of the admissions booklets (composite prospectus’) – these booklets contain the relevant application form and all the information parents need on how to apply for places.

Each Local Authority is required to return an annual report to the School Adjudicator. The 2019 Knowsley report can be found below:
