Applying for a place at this school

Plantation Primary School is a community primary school where we welcome all applicants. We welcome visits to the school by families who may be interested in applying – please contact us on 0151 487 5678 and we will make an appointment for you to visit.

Sometimes it isn’t always possible to offer places to all who apply. If there are more applicants than places, the school has an admissions policy that is used to decide who has priority for places.

School Admissions Policy

The admission policy for 2019/20 is printed in the local authority’s admission booklet which is available on the Knowsley Council website; -

Paper copies are available from school or from Knowsley School Admissions by contacting 0151 443 5142 / 5143. The booklet gives you all the information you’ll need to apply for school places.

Reception class

Applications for places in the reception class are made between September and the 15th January each year. So applications for September 2019 should be made no later than 15th January 2019. It is really important to apply on time. Details of how to apply and other useful information are given in the admission booklet.

Applications at other times

If you are moving to this area and are interested in a place for your child, please get in touch with the school. There is an In-Year application form to complete which gives you notes and contact details. This is also available from Knowsley School Admissions Team by telephoning (0151) 443 3372 / 3373.

Nursery Admissions

We take pupils into the nursery on a termly basis – usually the term following the child’s third birthday. There is information which includes the application form available from the school or on the Knowsley Council website

Please note: Obtaining a place in the nursery does not give your child any priority for admission to reception class – you still need to apply for a reception place at the right time.
