Admissions to Foundation Stage 2

Parents wishing to send their children to Poulton Lancelyn should complete the Wirral Authority Primary School Application Form (available after 1st September) and return it to the Education and Cultural Services Department by the middle of January to ensure the allocation of a place. Applications received after the published deadline in January will be dealt with once the offer of places has been sent to parents in mid April.

Children are admitted full-time in September. In the summer term, before they begin school, parents are invited to a welcome session for all children and their parents/carers to meet the Headteacher and Foundation Stage staff.

We have open days in Autumn Term for parents to visit school. Please check our calendar for further details or contact the school office on 0151 334 5021. Our Prospective Parent Powerpoint can be found below. 

Please use the websites below to register and apply online for a school place for your child. 



Admission to other year groups

Parents wishing to send their children to any other year group should make an appointment to see a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher for further details or clarification regarding mid year admissions. Whilst the Local Authority is the official admissions body, information is available from school.



F1/Nursery Admissions 2023/24

Application packs for September 2024 F1/nursery places can be collected from the school office from September 18th 2023. Any applications should be returned to the school office by January 31st 2024. 

Applications received after this date will be considered late. The school admissions policy will be used to determine place allocations. 

Pupils already attending nursery will automatically continue in F1.



If your child attends F1, this does not automatically grant them a place in F2. An application to the Local Authority must still be completed.
