School Admission Arrangements 2019/20

The local authority and the governors of schools are currently considering the admission arrangements for pupils entering nursery classes, reception classes, Year 7 and Year 12 in September 2019. This may seem early, but it is to allow time for discussion on the final version. Information booklets are published in September 2018 with the final policies.

Our admission number is 60 children per year group.

Admission Arrangements

When your child is allocated a place in our school, there is a full induction process. All new Nursery and Reception parents attend an induction meeting. This will give you an opportunity to meet teachers and children and to find out all about our school. Every new parent will receive a comprehensive pack containing all the information you need to know. All new Nursery children are visited in their home setting by members of the Nursery staff. Reception children attend two induction workshops when they will work and play in small groups with their new teacher so that they feel secure and happy as they start school.

For children who are new to Prescot Primary during a school year, who may have transferred from another school, there is a full induction programme involving both parents and children. New parents will meet with the Headteacher so that we have an opportunity to discuss our expectations as a school and talk about your child – their likes and dislikes, what they enjoy learning and any support educationally, socially or medically that they may need.
