September 2022 Admissions

Year R applications are normally for children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 for starting school in September 2022.

To apply for a place at a Primary School for your child for September 2022 you will need to complete a special form called a Common Application Form (RCAF form for short) which you will find at Kent Online Admissions

Applications for primary admissions for September 2022 open on Friday 5th November 2021 and close at midnight on Monday 17th Jan 2022.

You will be notified by email on Tuesday 19th April 2022 after 4pm.

Please read through the Admission to Primary School Information Booklet carefully before filling in your RCAF.  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 17th January 2022.

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 Tuesday 19th April 2022.

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 of Wednesday 4th May 2022.  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.
