Please get your child to school on time, so that they don’t miss out on their education. 

 In School, On Time, Every Day!

Uniform Parents have always supported the wearing of school uniform and we ask you to keep up the standards, for example jeans etc. are not allowed. Uniform is made up of a navy blue sweat shirt and yellow polo shirt, each with the school logo that was designed by one of our children. These are available in all sizes, including Nursery, from Paul’s Place opposite the strand Shopping Centre or from PrimaDonna in the Marian Square. Black or grey trousers (for girls and boys) and skirts complete the uniform.  However, parents and carers may also purchase uniform, without the school badge, from any high street store or retail outlet that sells the school colours.

The school PE kit consists of white polo shirts and dark blue shorts. If you choose to purchase these from the school they are available at £2.50 per item.

Administration of Medicines Sefton has issued guidance on the administrations of medicine in schools. and outline below are our main policy points. Our full policy and Sefton’s guidance are available at the school should you wish to see them.

Short Term Illness

  • Medicines issued and labelled by a chemist, may be brought in to school to be administered by staff, so that your child may return to school as soon as possible. You will be required to fill in a Short-Term Medication form.
  • Such items as cough sweets may be brought in provided they are given to the class teacher at the beginning of the day, together with a consent form.

Long Term Illness

  • A signed consent form (available from the school office) must be completed whenever a request is made for a child to receive medicine. No medication will be given without the consent form. This applies to inhalers too. Brown inhalers should never be brought into school.
  • Medicines, should be brought in to school, preferable by the parent and delivered to the school office or the class teacher. The medicines should be in the original dispensing container, together with the medication insert, and must be clearly labelled by a chemist with contents, owner’s name and dosage.
  • If your child needs a regular use of non-prescribed drugs such as pain killers, migraine or hay fever tablets, you should provide the medication and the full information together with the consent form. The medication must be given to the class teacher who will supervise and record its use.

In all cases where, following the administration of medication, there are concerns regarding the condition of the child, parents will be called.

Admissions We admit children in the Autumn Term of the school year in which they reach the age of five. The school operates the general admissions policy recommended by Sefton and this policy may be seen in full at the school. The main points are:

  • If you wish your child to attend the school, you should contact us and fill in Sefton’s Application Form. Alternatively you can apply for a place online by visiting www.sefton.gov.uk/admissions.  Approximately 90% of places are filled by children who attend our Early Years Unit (Marigold). Our admission number has been reduced to 30 so early application for the remaining places is advisable.
  • If there are more applications than places, the first priority is towards a ‘Looked after Child’. These are children who are currently in the care of the Local Authority.  The second priority is toward children who already have a brother or sister attending the school and the third is the nearness of their home.

Generally, the same criteria as above will apply to Nursery admission, but, clearly, there will be some points of difference. For example:

  • a child’s name may be added to the waiting list after the second birthday and we are always ready to welcome new families to the Nursery, who do not yet have a child at our school!
  • Children are admitted to the nursery during the term following their third birthday.
  • Applications for a nursery place are dealt with directly by the school and a form can be obtained from the school office.
