Primary Admissions

How to apply if your child is due to start primary school in September 2022.

Most children begin primary school at the start of the school year in which they reach school age (5 years old).

If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018 they will start school in September 2022.


Applications for children due to start Primary School in September 2022 opens on Thursday 5th November 2021 and closes on the 17th January 2022.


Ways to apply:

  • apply online
  • apply by post 


If you live in Kent you can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's 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.


To apply to a school outside of Kent, name the school in your application along with your other preferences. Your application details will be passed on to to the relevant local authority for processing.


If you need advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email


Important Dates:

*5th November 2021 - KCC online registration opens

*17th January 2022 -  KCC online registration closes

*19th April 2022 -  Offer Day
