Primary School Admissions for September 2023 - If you have a child who will be joining us next year, please ensure that you complete your application form. The Reception Common Application Forms (RCAF) and Primary School Booklets are available online at www.kent.gov.uk/primaryadmissions.
Applications for transfer to primary school for both reception year and year 3 (junior school) in September 2023 will open on Friday 4 November 2022 and close on Monday 16 January 2023.
If you provided an email address on your application KCC will email you on Monday 17 April 2023 after 4pm to tell you which school you have been offered.
You can also log in from 5pm on Monday 17 April 2023 to view your offer online.
You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.
To apply to a school outside of Kent, name the school in your application along with your other preferences. Your application details will be passed on to the relevant local authority for processing.
If you need advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to make an appointment to view our school, please contact the school office on 01795 532401 or by email email@example.com.
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.
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. If you would like to read or print a copy of Primary Schools co-ordinated admissions scheme booklet you can click on the link below or go to the Kent County Council website www.kent.gov.uk/primaryadmissions.
