September 2023 Admissions

Year 3 applications are normally for children born between September 2014 and August 2015 for starting Junior School in September 2023.

To apply for a place at a Primary School for your child for September 2023 you will need to complete a special form called a Common Application Form (JCAF form for short) which you will find at Kent Online Admissions

Applications for primary admissions for September 2023 open on Friday 4th November 2022 and close at midnight on Monday 16th Jan 2023.

You will be notified by email on Monday 17th April 2023 after 4pm.

Please read through the Admission to Primary School Information Booklet carefully before filling in your JCAF.  This booklet is available on the Admissions website via

1.    You will need to be very clear about which school you want as your first preference.

2.    You should complete only one Common Application Form per child.

3.    You will need to fill in the forms online by Monday 16th January 2023.

4.    Applications received after this date will be considered as late. (Please read Admissions to Primary School Information Booklet for further advice).  

Online applications will receive an email after 4.00pm on Monday 17th April 2023.

You will receive an email offering you at place.  At this point, you will need to come into the School with proof of the address of the only or main residence of your child and your offer form completed and signed.  This will need to be in the form of the following documents:

A child tax and working tax credit letter (TC602), the child's medical card or a letter from a medical centre, hospital or GP to confirm the child's residence, a letter from the child's nursery or playgroup or a bank statement of a savings account in the child's name.

AND a utility bill.

OR a bank or credit card statement.

These documents should not be more than three months old and preferably should show that the child was resident at the address at the time of the closing date.  We will need to see all three of these documents for every child being admitted (even those who have siblings at the school already). If you are unable to provide the above documents, to prove your child's only or main residence, the local Authority has the right to take your child's place away.
