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 on line or paper but not both.

 In Year Casual Admissions

In Year Casual Admissions are admissions that take place outside of the normal entry to school. From 1st September 2013 parents must apply directly to schools.  Schools must process all applications and make offers where places are available in line with their published over subscription criteria.

If you are a parent or carer of a child who already lives or has recently moved to Kent and is looking for a place at our school, you must complete an In Year Casual Admissions Form (IYCAF).  These forms are available from schools, the primary admissions team or you can download the application form and guidance notes on how to make an in year application from the Kent County Council website: www.kent.gov.uk/primaryadmissions.

Primary Admissions can also be contacted on 03000 41 21 21.

or you can email the admissions team on primaryadmissions@kent.gov.uk

Completed IYCAFs must be returned to the school.  We will then inform you as to whether a place is available or not.  Details of our over subscription criteria can be found by clicking the link on this page
