We adhere to the Local Education Authority’s admission policy. Please see the local authority website .


Reception place applications can be made on-line from the November before your child is due to start Reception the following September by logging on to the Kent County Council’s website on-line at All applications are accessed according to the admission criteria and offer letters are sent out direct from the local authority.


Parents are legally responsible to ensure their child starts school in the year in which they have their fifth birthday. They will start school in the Autumn term (September) initially part-time for a period of up to 3 weeks to ensure children are happy, settled and ready for full days. There is an opportunity to delay starting full-time education, at parent’s request and in consultation with the Class Teacher and Headteacher, if your child is not ready which sometimes is the case for very young summer born children.

In Year Applications

In year applications are for children moving into the area or wishing to move schools are dealt with through the Main school office. Please contact them for an In Year Application form.
