Parent Collaborative

The school primarily exists to serve Christian families. Prospective parents are encouraged to make themselves familiar with the values of the school described throughout our web site, the Parent and Education Team Agreement, and our statement of faith.

Academic requirements

We have mixed ability classes. Our aim is to maintain a fairly even spread of ability in each class. This enables us to keep the school as balanced and as inclusive as possible.

Initial Assessment

Upon acceptance, we arrange for the new pupil to sit some standardised tests. This is not an entrance exam, and the results are used to establish a baseline from which progress can be measured.

Potential learning difficulties may show up from this screening. In such circumstances it may be necessary to have further discussion to consider how best to provide for the pupil's learning needs.

Records

To assist in the smooth running of the admissions procedure, school reports and any other educational assessments will be requested during. We may also ask for verbal reports from previous schools.

Special Needs Provision (SEND)

It is important that any history of special needs is discussed fully during the admissions procedure. As a mainstream school with an inclusion policy, we aim to address a range of special learning needs within the classroom setting.

However, as a small school serving the whole of Merseyside, we cannot always cater for every need. Therefore, any provision required beyond what is possible for one class teacher to achieve within a mixed ability class, will need to be agreed with parents before a place can be confirmed.
