Places at Great Meols Primary School are allocated by the Local Authority, following criteria stated in the Primary Education Booklet found on the Wirral Council website.
Admissions to Reception (Foundation Stage 2)
Parents wishing to send their children to this school should complete the Wirral Authority Primary Preference Form after 1st September 2017 and return it to the Children and Young People’s Department by the middle of January 2018 to ensure the allocation of a place on the last day of March 2018. Applications received after the published deadline in January will be dealt with once the offer of places has been sent to parents on the last Friday in March.
In the few months before they begin school, parents are invited to meet the Headteacher and other teachers. Every effort is made to have children in school for an informal session before they officially start.
Children are admitted full time in September unless parents feel that their child is not ready for this. By law, children must start school at the commencement of the term following that in which they have their fifth birthday.
Admissions to any other year group
Parents wishing to send their children to any other year group should make an appointment to see the Headteacher. Parents will then be shown around the school, and an Application Form is available on the Wirral Council website. This will then be forwarded to the Children and Young People’s Department.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher for further details or clarification regarding admissions. Whilst the Local Authority is the official admissions body, information is available from school.
