On this link you will find the following local authority consultation documents in relation to community primary schools and those primary and secondary academies who are adopting the local authority admission policy. Parents/carers of school-age children and relevant pre-schoolers and community groups who may have an interest are invited to submit their views on the proposals.
Applying for a place at Malvern Primary School
We are a community primary school and we welcome all applicants – regardless of geographic location. We have two classes in each year group – with a maximum of 30 pupils in each class. We welcome visits to the school by families who may be interested in applying – please contact the school office (0151 477 8230) to make an appointment. As a community school, we use the Knowsley School Admissions Procedures in order to determine the allocation of places.
The admission policy is available on the Knowsley Council website;-
Please find below our own Application form. This can be completed at any time when you are interested in a place at our school for your child.

Applying for a place at our Nursery
We take pupils into the Nursery in September and January – usually the term following the child’s third birthday. The application form is available directly from the school office or can be accessed via the link below.
Please Note: Obtaining a place in the Nursery does not give your child any priority for admission to one of our Reception classes.
