What if Castleway is full for Foundation 2 places?

If at the end of the Summer Term a school is believed to be full, the Council will close the procedures and make no more reallocations. However, it may be that places will become available at the beginning of or during the Autumn Term. The Council will keep a list of children whose parents have expressed an interest in obtaining a place at the school if a place becomes available. In August, the Council will write to the parents of those children who have expressed a continuing interest. This list will be held open during the Autumn Term. Priority on the list will be given to children in accordance with the criteria given in paragraphs 3.1.1 and 3.1.2 of Wirral's 'Co-ordinated Scheme for Admission Arrangements'. Each added child requires the list to be ranked again in line with the published admission criteria. 


We look forward to hearing from you.

We are a Federation of 2 schools: In September 2022, Castleway Nursery School joined Castleway Primary School on the same site after significant refurbishment works from the Local Authority.
