If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Admissions arrangements for Reception
All admissions information, process and deadlines for reception aged children are organised by Liverpool City Council. You can access that information either by using the hyperlink below or opening up the document at the bottom of the page.
At Knotty Ash we have 30 places per year group. The Local Authority guidance gives information if we are oversubscribed.
For 2020, arrangements have been revised in light of Coronavirus and school closure. Reception school places are communicated to parents on 16th April.
TO ACCEPT - please email school business manager at email@example.com
- scan/photograph proofs of residence and send to above email address
- scan/photograph birth certificate and send to above email address
If you are unable to scan/photograph documents, then let us know and we will make arrangements to view them at a later date. Normally, these would be brought into school so we hope there will be opportunity for this when life returns to some normality.
TO DECLINE - please email school on email address above
TO APPEAL - the Department for Education (DfE) has not released how this process will work this year. We will update this page when we have further clarification.
Knotty Ash hosts a Deaf Resource Base (DRB) which is an integral part of the school. We are therefore able to accommodate severely/profoundly deaf children in our inclusive mainstream school with specialist teachers of the deaf. The process of admission to the DRB is coordinated by Liverpool Local Authority Sensory Service. The operational lead is:
Ms Chris Haigh

We are happy to show families around our school but please be aware that this is no guarantee of a place being offered.
The school are able to offer a place for your child from the day after their third birthday. Applications are made directly to the school. Parents and Carers can submit an application anytime before their child's third birthday. The earlier the better!

Morning session 8.30am-11.30am
Afternoon session 12.30pm-3.30pm
We also offer 30 hour (full day) provision for children who are eligible.
