Admission booklets
Supplementary forms for faith primary schools
Some Knowsley Church of England primary schools have a supplementary form that you may need to complete if you wish your application to be considered under certain criteria of the admission policy.  These forms are available below for parents/carers to download and complete and should be returned directly to the individual school/s by the closing date of 15 January 2019.  Any supplementary form completed must be in addition to the relevant home local authority application form.  Please refer to the 2019/20 Primary Admissions Booklet or contact the individual school directly for more information.
If you are resident in another authority area and are naming a Knowsley Catholic primary or secondary school as a preference, your home authority application form may not request all the relevant faith information required by Knowsley Catholic schools to apply their policies. Parents/carers may download and complete the primary or secondary Catholic school supplementary form and returning them directly to the Knowsley Catholic primary/secondary school/s you are applying for by the relevant closing date.
