The Local Authority consulted with schools, neighbouring local authorities, church authorities and parents/members of the public before determining admission arrangements for the 2024/25 intake of nursery, reception and Y7 pupils. An on-line public consultation was undertaken via this website for the required six-week period (from 19 December 2022 to 31 January 2023).
No comments or objections were received in respect of the proposed arrangements and subsequently the arrangements have been determined and can be viewed via the links below.
The Local Authority has also formulated primary and secondary admission schemes. These are the procedures for applying for places and the allocation processes for entry to school in the 2024/25 school year and apply to all schools/academies in the Local Authority area.
Academies and Voluntary Aided Schools (Catholic and Church of England) are also required to determine their admission arrangements on an annual basis.
Parents have a right to raise an objection with the Schools Adjudicator if they believe that any determined arrangements 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 on www.education.gov.uk/schoolsadjudicator/decisions/obj Objections must be submitted no later than 15 May 2023.
The determined admission policies and admission numbers for Voluntary Aided Schools/Academies in Knowsley and any Academies that are not adopting the Local Authority admission policy, can be accessed from the links below and can also be viewed on the individual school website.
