School Admissions

For parents and carers who wish to apply for their child to start at our school at the beginning of our Reception class, applications should be made via Halton Local Authority's Admissions Scheme (online) before the January deadline.  Please go to for further information or to apply; or contact the School Admissions Team on 0151 511 7271/7338.

Should you wish to request a place for your child at our school in any other year group, or once the school year has started, please contact the school directly with your child's name and their date of birth – so we can inform you if we have any spaces available. 

 It is strongly advised for parents/carers of children who are already in a school - and are seeking to move to another school for reasons other than a house move – first meet and discuss the move with the child's current school before they contact the new school (or complete an application form).

If you decide to move your child to Halton Lodge Primary School, it is essential that you first get confirmation that there is a place available at our school before your child leaves his or her current school.  A place will generally only be allocated if the number of children on roll within the year group at the time is below the published admission number.

To apply for an In-Year Place, parents/carers may also contact the Child Place Planning Team on 0151 511 7271/7338. You will be asked to complete an in year application form – in the same way that you would if you were to contact the school directly - and to return this when it is completed to us.  We will then notify you in writing of the outcome of the In-Year application within 10 school days.
