Admission Arrangements

Reception Intake September 2020

Welcome to Childwall Church of England Primary School. We are delighted that you have chosen our school for your child.

We are in unprecedented times and as yet we do not know when our school will re-open. However, we do not want this to prevent us getting you and your child ready to start with us. Ordinarily, you would be required to bring your acceptance form and additional information to school in order to accept your place.  However, since school is closed, and to reduce risks associated with public contact,  we would like you to do the following:

We have a dedicated email address which we would like you to use for all correspondence:

admissions@childwallce.com

To begin the admissions process please can you email the following to the above address, no later than Friday 1st May 2020:
– Name of your child, their date of birth and address
– Your name
– If you are ACCEPTING or DECLINING the place at Childwall Church of England Primary School
– We require 2 proofs of residence, eg) recent utility bills (last 3 months); since council tax bills have recently been issued, this might be an appropriate one for you to use.. If possible email a PDF of these or a photograph with your name, the date and address clearly visible.
– A PDF copy or photograph of your child’s birth certificate or passport
– Any adoption orders
– A copy of any Court orders if applicable
– The name of the nursery or childminder your child was attending prior to the lockdown
– Any SEND needs we need to be aware of to help our Deputy Head Teacher for Inclusion to plan to meet your child’s needs.

Sight of original documents will still be requested in due course.
If you are unable to copy any documents, please do not worry. Once we are back in school, we will contact you to bring them in to school at a later date.

As soon as we know what the plan is to re-open schools,  we will be in touch to discuss meeting you and your child/ren.

We look forward to getting to know you and your child in the coming months and years.

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.

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.
