Nursery Admissions

Children are normally admitted into our Nursery Department in the September in the year in which their 4th Birthday falls.    To apply for a place please collect an application form from the School Office, you are very welcome to look around the Nursery, please make a prior appointment to ensure staff are available to show you around. We will require your child’s birth certificate before we can put your child’s name on the waiting list or offer a place. We usually offer places in June for the following September.

Children can attend 5 half-day sessions per week.

If there are places available we are sometimes able to offer 3-year-old children places.  The places would be offered from the term after the term in which their 3rd birthday falls. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee a place for 3-year-olds as 4-year-olds have priority. Please also be aware that 3-year-old children offered a place in N1 Nursery are not guaranteed a place as a 4-year-old in N2, as the length of time on the waiting list take priority and older children may be higher up on the waiting list for the N2 September waiting list.

Also Please be aware that admission into the Nursery Department does not guarantee a place in the Reception Class.  It is very important that you apply for a Reception place via Liverpool Local Authority following their guidance which can be found on the web page Admission to Reception.

If you would like any further information please contact the school on 0151 427 7759

Criteria for Admission to the Nursery

Admission into the Nursery is based on length of time on the waiting list.  You may apply for a place, and put your child’s name on the waiting list, not before the September in which your child’s 2nd birthday falls.  We require a copy of the Child’s Birth Certificate before they can be placed on the waiting list.

Please be aware that admission to the Nursery Department does not guarantee a place in Reception.


Admission to Reception Class

All applications for Reception Class are co-ordinated by the Local Authority.

Please be aware that attending Springwood Heath’s Nursery does not guarantee your child a place in our Reception.  You must complete an application form via the website and places will be allocated according to the Local Authority admission criteria.

All Liverpool schools follow the co-ordinated admission arrangements and equal preference scheme to allocate places in primary schools

The purpose of co-ordinated admission arrangements is to ensure parents receive a single offer of a school place for their child on the same day.

Therefore all applications must be made online via The Local Authority website if you have difficulties please telephone Admissions section on 0151 233 3006.  Unfortunately the school is unable to give you a paper application form.  Please be aware the closing date for September admitance is in January.

Children are admitted to the Reception Class in the September of the year in which they have their 5th Birthday.  Our published admission number is 30. Parents are very welcome to come and have a look around the school, please telephone in advance to make a prior appointment,  but all applications must be made via Liverpool City Council.  Please note the school cannot admit a child directly, all allocations must come via the Local Authority.
