Admissions Form

Reception

The Governing Body intends to admit 60 Reception pupils for classes at the start of each academic year.   

Kent Application Process

To apply for a Reception class place at Holy Trinity CE Primary School please  apply online or by post.

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.

Read the full Admissions Guide to Parents in Kent.

For advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email kentonlineadmissions@kent.gov.uk.

 

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.

Our In Year Casual Admission Form (IYCAF) can be found below. Please complete both forms.

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.
