Admissions and Covid- 19
During the interruption to the usual processes for admission appeals that has been caused by Covid-19, we are amending our procedures and will follow the government regulations as detailed on the gov.uk site which is linked below.
Please contact the school if you wish to make an appeal and we will arrange this for you.
If you are moving into Medway and would like a place at any Medway school parents must contact Medway's Student Services Operations Team or visit www.medway.gov.uk
We have 45 places for each year group available in school and these are allocated to families who apply.
If in the likely case we are over-subscribed, the following criteria will be applied in this order:
Children in public care
Children of Staff
Medical, health and special access reasons
Nearness of child’s home
Please contact the School Office for an Application Form and to arrange a visit. A member of the school leadership team meets every new family either personally or at a meeting arranged for all children joining our Foundation Stage.
Our priority is to ensure that your child settles happily into school. We give your child (and you) the opportunity to become familiar with the school, its routines and show how you can help your child make the best of their learning.
Admissions Policy & Appeals Information
In Years 1 and 2 appeals are unlikely to be successful due to the laws regarding infant class sizes which are capped at a maximum of 30.
Please speak to us before going ahead with an appeal, they cost the school a lot of time and money and we can advise you of the likely hood of success, there may be 5 or 6 people on the waiting list in front of you, or a family may have contacted us to say they are moving shortly so we know a place may soon be available so there is not the need for a appeal process.
