Admission Arrangements

At Rudston, we follow the local authority admissions procedure for all admissions except Bright Stars Pre-School which has a separate policy. Foundation classes admissions can be submitted to the Liverpool City Council Primary Admissions website to be found at…

Reception and Secondary Admissions

This site can also be used for secondary school applications for Year 6 children.

If the school is oversubscribed, priority is given on the following criteria: 

  • Children in care
  • Children whose acute medical or social need justify the allocation of a place at the particular school
  • Children with a brother or sister on roll at the school in Reception to Year 6 at the time of the proposed admission
  • Children living nearest to the main entrance of the school. These distances will be measured in a straight line using a GIS computerised batch distance measuring mapping system.

Parents and carers should be aware that applications to Reception classes in 2023, we had 167 applications for 60 places. A place in our nursery is no guarantee of a place in the Reception class.

As a two form entry school we have 60 children per year group which makes demand for places competitive.

In-year admissions for Reception are managed by Liverpool City Council Primary Admissions until Christmas. From January in Reception through to Year 6 in year transitions are managed by the school. Parents who wish to tour the school or make enquiries about places in specific year groups are asked to contact the school directly.

For further information please phone or call in to the school office, we are happy to help. Please e-mail the school ([email protected]) if you have any queries.

Once children have been offered a place at Rudston the families will be invited to complete admissions paperwork and discuss their child’s needs at the school.

As a maintained school we follow Liverpool City Council school admissions procedures. Full details of the admissions arrangments including in year transfers and appeals can be found at
