If you are a parent wishing to apply for a place for your child at our school you will need to complete the In Year Admission Form (IYAF).  Please send the completed form back to school. You will need to fill in a separate form for each child.

If we are unable to offer a place your child’s name will be added to our waiting list. If you contact the school office you will be able to obtain information on where your child is on the waiting list. You have the right to appeal against the refusal of a place.

If you would like more information about joining our school please contact Miss Rebecca Fuggle or Mrs Claire Feleppa, Admissions Officers, or email us at enquiries@sandgate.kent.sch.uk

Admissions for Pre-School Age Children

If your child is not old enough to start school yet (born after 31st August 2017), you may ‘register an interest’ at this school by filling in this Future Admissions Form and returning it to the school office, you can email it to enquiries@sandgate.kent.sch.uk.

‘Registering an interest’ at the school does not give your child priority for a place just because their name has been down longer than any other child.

When your child is old enough, the school will get in touch with you so that you can submit an admissions form for that year. The K.C.C. Admissions form that you will need to fill in is the Common Application Form (RCAF). This will be available to fill in online at www.kent.gov.uk/ola or can be collected from any primary school by you at the appropriate time, which is generally at the end of the Autumn Term before your child is due to commence the following Autumn.
