Kent Applications

Applications for children due to start Primary School in September 2020 open on 5 November 2019 and close on 15 January 2020.


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.


Some schools may need you to complete an additional form called a Supplementary Information Form (SIF). You can collect the form from the school.


If you need advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email


Important Dates:

⚫5th November 2019: KCC online registration opens

⚫15th January 2020: KCC online registration closes

⚫16th April 2020: Offer Day.
