Applying For a Place at Barming Primary School


If you wish to apply for a place here at Barming Primary School (not in the normal admissions round for Reception Places), then you will need to complete the form below and return it to the school in it's original format (sorry we cannot accept photos of the form) along with your child's original full birth certificate and a proof of address.  This can be either a Mortgage/Rental Agreement, Council Tax Statement or a Utility Bill (not a mobile phone bill).  You will then be sent a letter offering your child a place if there is a space available.  Should there not be a space available for your child, you will be placed on our waiting list for your child's Year according to your home's straight line distance from the school using the Kent County Council agreed method of measurement.  We will then only contact you after that should a place become available.
