We are consulting on our Admission Arrangements for September 2022. Please click here for further details.

Admission to reception classes September 2021

As a Church of England School, we became a member of the LDST (Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust) in December 2017 and the Governors became the Admitting Authority.

The Local Authority continue to coordinate admissions to our reception classes for September 2021. However the decision to admit, or otherwise, is the sole responsibility of The Governing Body. From the 12th September 2020 if you live in Liverpool and your child is eligible for reception class in 2021 you can apply on line for a school place. Click here to read advice on how to apply.  Applications close on 15th January 2021.

Click on the link for our school information, The Beacon Church of England Primary School.

Our PAN (pupil admission number) is 60 pupils into our reception classes. If we recieve less than 60 applications for places, all children will be admitted. If we receive more applications than 60, applications will be considered against our school's admissions criteria, set out below.

Parents of children already in our Nursery will need to follow the same application process for a Reception place and will, if school is oversubscribed, be considered against the same criteria as other applicants.

If you do not live in Liverpool, you should apply through the local authority where you do live.

Please note as the governors are now the Admitting Authority for the school, medical evidence under Criteria 2 needs to be submitted directly to school before the closing date, your preference form should still be submitted to the LA.

Right of Appeal

Parents whose children are refused admission have a right of appeal by an independent appeals panel. Parents will be notified in the letter from the Local Authority of how an appeal can be lodged.

Admission arrangements for pupils with disabiliies

Children are admitted to The Beacon CE Primary School according to our admissions policy. The admission of pupils with disabilities is the same as those applied to pupils without disabilities. The school complies fully with the Equality Act 2010 and the School Admissions Code 2012 in relation to the arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils. Where the school is oversubscribed all children are admitted in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria. Where a child is disabled the school will make reasonable adjustments and provide auxiliary aids or services to ensure that no disabled child is placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to other pupils.

Parents of children with disabilities are advised to speak to us prior to admission to discuss any reasonable adjustments required so we can plan accordingly.

Admission for other year groups, including in-year admissions

For all other admissions to our school or If you have any questions regarding admissions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
