Applications are then invited on line at the above KCC website. Parents/carers are advised to nominate three schools in preferential order. KCC will then endeavour to allocate a school of your choice. Parents are normally informed of their allocated school by Easter.
Casual admissions are the responsibility of the school. Application forms can be obtained from the school’s office or directly from Kent County Councils website www.kent.gov.uk.

For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
Your appeal request should state your reasons for your request and any additional information/documentation/appendices should be submitted five days before the Hearing to allow time for it to be copied and distributed to all the interested parties.
