Admission Arrangements

2021 Admissions – Due to the current COVID -19 pandemic, we are currently working with Liverpool Diocese and the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) to seek a variation to the admissions arrangements for 2021. The Supplementary Information Form will be available here as soon as this is completed.


Admission to our voluntary aided school is determined by the Governing Body of Childwall Church of England Primary School.

For the new Reception intake each year we have agreed to follow the co-ordinated admission arrangements and equal preference scheme determined by the Local Authority. All admissions will be agreed by our Governing Body. We require parents/ guardians to complete a school Application Form, as well as placing the school as a preference on the online application or preference form issued by Children and Young People’s Service. You must complete both forms.

The school Pupil Admission Number (PAN) is 60 (two classes per year group).

Please direct all enquiries to – thank you.

Applications for an In Year Transfer

An In Year Transfer is when parents or carers apply to transfer their child from one primary school to another primary school during the school year.

A completed application will be considered by the Admissions Committee of the Governing Body and the outcome of the application and the right to appeal will be given to parents in writing.

If the year group is full applicants will usually be refused admission and if parents/ carers wish, their child’s name added to the waiting list. The waiting list is maintained by the Admissions Committee of the Governing Body.

If there are more applicants for places than there are places in a year group, the schools admission policy will be used to decide which children are admitted.
