For admission into next year’s Nursery, parents and carers are asked to complete an application form which you can download from here or collect in school.  Forms should be submitted into the school with a copy of your child’s birth certificate.   Forms should be submitted for the September intake by Mid March before the academic year required. 

Cecil Road Primary and Nursery School offers 15 hours free childcare places and  30 hours free childcare places.  We are also able to offer split hours with the universal offer being used at our Nursery.  Please call  01474 534 544 or email office@cecilroad.co.uk  if you have any questions.

Reception Applications

For admissions into next year’s Reception, parents and carers are required to complete an application form known as the “Common Application Form” (CAF) through Kent County Council.  This can be found by clicking here for the Kent County Council 'Applying for a School' web page which also provides other key information on primary school admissions.  Forms should be submitted in accordance with the LA’s published deadlines for applications (normally early to mid-January before the academic year in which the child is eligible for entry).

Please call the school for dates of open school information tours.

In Year Admission

If you are looking for a place at our school because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general wellbeing, you are entitled to apply for a school place.   

Please contact us to speak to our Admission Officer, Carole Beeney, to request information regarding this. Please call on 01474 534544 or email office@cecilroad.co.uk

Please Note: there is no guarantee that a place will be available but you have the right to appeal if you are declined a place.
