Admission Arrangements

Admission to Reception Year at Barming Primary School (For In Year Admissions, please see further below)

 

You may apply for a reception year place at Barming Primary School for the September 2020 intake from November 2019.

 

Your child is eligible for a place at Barming Primary School if they were born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016.

 

You can apply online through the Kent County Council website or by post and not through the school.  Applications will open in November 2019.  Exact dates and full details of how to apply will be available on the Kent Count Council website when applications open.  You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It is in your best interests to list 3 schools. Naming only one 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.

 

Key dates for 2019/2020 Year R admissions are as follows:

 

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 15th January 2020

 

National offer day: Thursday 16th April 2020

 

Deadline for lodging appeals: Thursday 14th May 2020

 

Appeals

 

If your child is due to start primary, infant or junior school in 2020, you can appeal between 16th April and 14th May 2020 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by Mid July 2020.  For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.

 

Kent County Council's admissions team can be contacted on 03000 416 789 for in-year places,

or 03000 416 111 for entry to primary school.

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

Applying For an In Year 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.

 

In order for us to be as prepared as possible for the admission of your child, we also ask that you complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and submit this at the time of your application.  Applications will not be considered without a SIF.
