In September, all Reception children stay for mornings only for the first five school days.  In the second week, children stay for lunch and in week three they will be with us all day.  Prior to a child starting in our Reception Class, parents and carers will be offered the opportunity to have a home visit where school staff can meet children in their familiar surroundings.

In Year Admissions

Parents seeking a place for their child during the school year should download an ‘In Year Casual Admission Form’ (IYCAF) from this website and return it to the school.   We will then inform you as to whether a place is available or not.  Unsuccessful applicants are welcome to join the waiting list for places should a vacancy arise.

IYCAF (In Year Casual Admission Form)


You can appeal if you have been refused a place at your preferred school. The Kent County Council Primary Schools Appeal Guide is available here.

No discrimination will be shown to a prospective pupil on the grounds of race, sex or ability nor to those with disabilities once mainstream schooling has been deemed to be the most appropriate placing.
