To apply for a firm place at a Primary School for your child for September 2018, you will need to complete a special form called a Common Application Form (RCAF form for short). The application process starts on Monday 6th November and closes on Monday 15th January 2018. We strongly recommend that you apply online at www.kent.gov.uk/ola.
If you apply online a paper RCAF must not be submitted and vice versa.
Online applicants will receive an email in March/April 2018 (exact date to TBA by Kent County Council) advising them of their offer. Letters of notification of a primary place will also be sent out including those who have applied online from the LA. Only parents who apply online can receive their offer notification by e-mail, parents who apply on paper will need to wait for their formal letter. You will then need to inform the school in writing as to whether you will accept the place or not. At this point, you will also need to come to school with proof of address as to the only or main residence of your child. This will need to be in the form of each of these documents:
One of the following –
- Council Tax statement
- Signed Tenancy Agreement or Exchange of Contracts/Completion document
Along with two or more of the below –
- Child/Working Tax Credit/Child Benefit/JSA/Disability Benefit Letter or Statement
- Driving Licence
- Schedule of Motor Insurance
- Utility bills such as Gas/Water/Electric/Sky/Virgin Media/BT/Broadband etc
- Hospital or Doctor appointment letter
These documents should not be more than three months old. We need to see ALL THREE of these documents for EVERY child being admitted (even those who have siblings at school already). If you are unable to provide the above documents, to prove your child’s only or main residence, the Local Authority has the right to take your child’s place away.
If you have any queries about the Admission process please ring or come into school. You can also contact the Kent Admissions Team on 03000 41 21 21 or visit their website
