Primary School Reception Admissions (For September)

Please Note: all applications must be submitted to and are handled by Medway Council. The school is only informed who has applied and been accepted once the application deadline has passed.

Medway policy requires that children must apply to enter Reception (Foundation Stage 2), even if they attend a school nursery. Once a child receives a place in Reception they automatically pass from year group to year group until they leave for Secondary School.

Children with physical disabilities and/or complex medical conditions should confer with Medway Council and any external agencies supporting the family to help process their application and admission.

SEND Access and Admission Arrangements

Admissions for children to our inclusive specialist provisions is co-ordinated with Medway Local Authority.  An EHCP identifies that the child requires support for their physical disability and/or medical condition that cannot reasonably be provided within the resources normally available to mainstream schools.

For further information on SEND and school admissions, please contact us on 01634 231761 to speak to Miss H. Carter.

For SEND access arrangements please see the SEND report on our Special Provision Page.
