We would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all the new children and families who will be joining our Reception class in September. In light of the current situation of school closures due to Covid-19, our transition arrangements will look a little different this year and we are as yet unable to finalise our plans.
We will be in touch with you as soon as we can with details but in the meantime, Knowsley have created this website with FAQs and further information.
Sylvester Primary Academy welcomes all applicants, wherever they may live. We welcome visits to the school by families who may be interested in applying – just give us a ring on 0151 477 8320 and we can make an appointment for you to come and see us.
Please take a look at the Knowsley Primary Education Admissions 2020-2021 document below for further information on the admission process.
Paper copies are available from school or from the Knowsley Inclusion Team (Admissions) by phoning 0151 443 5142/3. The booklet gives you all the information you’ll need to apply for school places. Applications for places in the reception class are made between September and January each year. So applications for September 2020 are made no later than mid-January 2020. It’s really important to apply on time. Details of how to apply and other useful information are given in the admission booklet above. (If you live in another borough, contact your home authority for details of which form to use.) If you are moving to this area and are interested in a place for your child, please get in touch with the school initially who can provide you with all the appropriate paper work and provide information on whether the school has places.
Applying for a place at our Nursery
We take pupils into the nursery on a termly basis – usually the term following the child’s third birthday. There is a local authority nursery information sheet which includes the application form available below:
If you have any queries about how to apply for this school, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or call in. The Inclusion Team (Admissions) can also assist with general advice. We have attached “Expression of Interest” forms below. Please use these if your child would like a place at our school. They should be handed into the school office with a birth certificate and recent utility bill. We will then send out the Council official application forms to you at the correct time for you to apply for your place. These forms provide all the details that the school needs to register your child.
