For the attention of all Year 5 parents and guardians:
I am writing with regard to the primary school to secondary school transfer procedure for September 2021.
It is very important that all parents of children currently in Year 5 read the information.
An online booklet has been published which gives information about the transfer procedure and who to contact for more information. Children and Young People’s Service will notify eligible parents in September 2020 via their primary school to invite their applications during the admission round application window.
The leaflet is posted online on the Liverpool City Council website at https://liverpool.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/school-admissions/transfer-from-primary-to-secondary-school-2021/
It informs parents of the registration dates for schools which use aptitude assessments or ability tests as part of their admission arrangements.
Further information on how to apply and the wider admissions process can be found online through the Liverpool City Council website at :
*Covid-19 Virus Outbreak Note* - Please be aware that there is still uncertainty around school open evenings being able to take place during the Summer and Autumn months until current social distancing regulations are relaxed. The same uncertainty also concerns any entrance assessments and exams that schools normally hold on their sites for prospective pupils.
It is advised that parents contact the relevant schools as early as possible to kept abreast of the ever changing situation so it can be established what plans can be put in place for potential open evenings and entrance assessment or exams.
