Admissions and Transfer
Admissions to Nursery
Parents are asked to inform the school of the need for a place for their child at any time after their second birthday. Some children are offered a place in the Nursery Class for one, two or three terms before entry into school. Children are admitted to school in the Autumn Term just before their fifth birthday.
If the school is over subscribed places are allocated on the following basis:
- Parent's wishes
- Current siblings already in school
- Child's health reason (medical evidence will be required)
- Nearness to child's home and ease of access to school
Parents and children are invited to visit the school before they start. The starting dates will be staggered with all children attending part time only for the first few weeks.
Admissions to Reception to Year 6
To apply for a Primary school place in go to www.medway.gov.uk/schoolsandeducation/applyforaschoolplace.aspx
Please also contact the school office for an appointment with the Headteacher and to arrange a visit to the school.
The Year Six staff liaise closely with secondary colleagues to ensure a smooth transfer to Key Stage 3. We pass on all school records to the secondary school your child will be attending. Children in Year Six are assessed for placement at Grammar or High Schools under Medway's Selection Procedure. Information explaining this procedure is sent to parents of all children in the Autumn Term of Year Six.
