Kent Applications

Applications for children due to start Primary School in September 2021 opens on Thursday 5th November 2020 and closes on the 15th January 2021.


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 2020 - KCC online registration opens

*15th January 2021 -  KCC online registration closes

*16th April 2021 -  Offer Day


Admission Appeals


If your child is due to start primary, infant or junior school in 2021 you can appeal between 16th April and 17th May 2020.
