Admissions

Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School serves  the Parish of Saints Peter and Paul. Our standard number of available places is 45 for admission in the Reception Classes.

This arrangement follows the consultation between the Governing body, The Archdiocese of Liverpool and the Local Authority.

The government has placed a statutory legal limit on Infant class sizes that these classes shall not contain more than 30 pupils for all ordinary teaching sessions. Therefore we have two Reception classes for the admitted 45 children.

In the event that there are more applications than places the Governing body will allocate places using their agreed criteria below;

ADMISSIONS TO THE SCHOOL will be determined by the Governing Body.  Parents must complete a Local Authority Preference Form or apply online via the website

www.knowsley.gov.uk/schooladmissions

If you wish to have your application considered against that school’s faith/denomination criteria then you should ALSO complete the Supplementary Form which is available from the school or to download from the Local Authority website.  All preferences listed will be considered on an equal basis and, where there are more applications than the number of places available, the following set of OVERSUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA will be applied.

Following a change in statutory admission legislation effective from 1 September 2021, all Admission Authorities are expected to make a mandatory change to their oversubscription criteria for 2022/23. The change is to ensure that priority given to previously looked after children includes those children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.

(A child is regarded as having been in state care outside of England if they were in the care of or were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation, or any other provider of care whose sole or main purpose is to benefit society.)

Admission Authorities are expected to make the necessary revisions to their determined admission arrangements as soon as possible and these should be in place for the purpose of the 2022/23 allocation.
