Applying for a Reception place for September (4&5 year olds)

If you would like your child to start school with us you can:

You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It’s in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only 1 school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.

For advice email

Please note: Application acceptance dates change yearly, please check the above website or contact KCC admissions to find out more.



If you are unhappy with the school place you’ve been offered, you can appeal for any of the schools you named in your application.

KCC recommend you still accept the place your child has been offered. This will not affect your appeal and will guarantee your child has a school place if your appeal is unsuccessful. If your appeal is successful you must remember to tell the school you were originally offered that you no longer want the place.

If you weren’t offered your chosen school, this is usually because the school is full and there were other children who more closely met the school’s oversubscription criteria.

Please see the KCC website for more information.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
