Admissions for Pre-School Age Children

If your child is not old enough to start school yet (born after 31st August 2014), you may ‘register an interest’ at this school by filling in this 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.
