Admissions Form

Special Educational Needs

Decisions on the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan are made by the Local Authority.

The admission arrangements for pupils without an Education, Health and Care Plan, do not discriminate against or disadvantage children or those with special educational needs. For further information please see SEND page.

Dates 2017/18

In line with Paragraph 2.2 of the KCC admissions appeals code:

  • National offer day this year is 18th April 2017
  • Appeals should be lodged by 17th May 2017

Reception

The Governing Body intends to admit 60 Reception pupils during the academic year.  We anticipate all children starting in our Reception classes in September 2017.  However, younger children may not initially be offered a full time placement.  The closing date for applications and letters offering places will follow the dates laid down by Kent County Council.

Kent Application Process

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.

Casual Admissions

Casual admissions of children moving into the area or transferring from another school will be considered by Governors, having regard to the admission policy and according to whether places are available in the appropriate year group.

Over-Subscription

Where there are more applications than places Governors will use the criteria below in order:

  • Children looked after and children looked after but are no longer, due to an adoption.
  • Children of parents who are practising members of the Parish Church of St Peters and St Paul Milton or at St George’s Church, Gravesend or Christ Church Milton-Next-Gravesend.  (Practising members of a Church are defined as attending at least once a month).
  • Children of parents who are practising members of the Church of England.  (Practising members of a Church are defined as attending at least once a month).
  • Children of parents from other Christian Denominations who are practising members of churches that are members of ‘Churches Together in Gravehsam.  (Practising members of a Church are defined as attending at least once a month).
  • Children from families who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of admission. 

All other applicants will be prioritized according to distance of home from the school.  We ask the Local Authority to calculate distances.  They use the distance between the child’s permanent home address and the school, measured in a straight line using Ordnance Survey address point data.  Distances are measured from a point defined as within the child’s home to a point defined as within the school as specified by Ordnance Survey.  The same address point on the school site is used for everyone.

  • The school’s Christian values of love, honesty and respect are well expressed through its caring atmosphere. This impacts positively on the strong sense of belonging and supporting relationships evident across the school.
