Primary Admissions

Admission to Primary Schools 2024

You must apply for a primary school place if:

  • your child is due to start primary or infant school (reception year)
  • your child is at infant school (year 2) and is due to start junior school (year 3)
  • your child is at primary school (year 2) and you want your child to move to junior school at the start of year 3

Primary School Admissions for September 2024

For children starting school in September 2024 applications for both reception year and year 3 (junior school) closed on 15 January 2024.

Applications are processed between 6 November 2023 and 16 April 2024. 

KCC sent all applicants an email on Tuesday 16 April 2024 after 4pm advising which school you have been offered.

If you have not applied and are a Kent resident please email with your child’s:

  • name
  • date of birth
  • full address

If you have applied but your circumstances have changed and you need to amend your application email

If you need advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email


If you are unhappy with the school place you've been offered, you can appeal for any of the schools you named in your application.

You can still accept the place your child has been offered. This will not affect your appeal and will guarantee your child has a school place if your appeal is unsuccessful. 

For further information or advice regarding the Appeals process please contact KCC Admissions 03000 41 42 22 or email for support.

Additional information

Once you have been offered a place, you must complete and return the acceptance form to the primary school offered together with birth certificate, council tax statement, utility bill and proof of child's address.  If you miss the deadline to accept the place you should contact Admissions to discuss whether the place is still available. You may lose your place if you do not accept by the deadline.

Once you have accepted your place we will contact you in due course with further details of your child's admission.  We have a maximum intake of 60 children.

When we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to an Open Evening with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have. This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. At the start of September, just before starting school, each child is visited at home by our Reception class staff.

A prospectus of all primary schools and written explanation of the co-ordinated admissions scheme is available on request from Admissions or our school office.
