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 2024 intake from Friday 3rd November 2023.


Your child is eligible for a place at Barming Primary School if they were born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020.


You can apply online through the Kent County Council website or by post and not through the school.  Applications will open in Friday 3rd November 2023.  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 2023/2024 Year R admissions are as follows:


Application process opens:  Friday 3rd November 2023

Deadline for applications: Monday 15th January 2024




National Offer Day  Tuesday 16th April 2024 after 4pm with your place.




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
