Pupils are admitted to school in accordance with the County admissions policy. Parents can apply online at www.kent.gov.uk/ola from November until the closing date early in January. Parents who do not have access to the internet can request an application form from the school. The Form RCAF (Reception Common Admissions Form) should be completed and returned to the school or to the LEA Admissions Team by the closing date in January. Only one application must be submitted per child, either online or paper but not both. For older children moving to the school, applications will need to be made through the child’s home local authority. The Kent Form, IYCAF, for children living in Kent is available from the school office or from email@example.com and should be returned to the school.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2017 you can appeal between 18 April and 17 May, 2017 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 19th July, 2017. For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. For late applications appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeals being lodged.
