We look forward to meeting you then.


Making Learning Irresistible

We teach your child to think in many different ways. They will become involved in solving problems, conducting investigations, hypothesising, philosophising and reaching conclusions which can be justified.

We also specialise in teaching deaf children. Our specialist staff help the children to communicate effectively using British Sign Language, Sign Supported English, finger spelling, lip reading and speech – “total communication”. All children will learn British Sign Language as part of our curriculum.

Our staff work closely together to provide a safe, clean, calm and stimulating learning environment for all children. We take learning into the outdoor environment too – with a large field, a copse, a pond and plenty of playground space

Casual Admissions including Nursery

Parents/carers need to complete and return the Casual In-Year Admission Form and places will be offered in accordance with the co-ordinated scheme.

  • Parents can apply for a casual admission at any time during the school year.
  • If no places are available at the time of application, a waiting list will be maintained. Names are kept in priority order according to the oversubscription criteria and not according to how long a child’s name has been on the list.
  • Any place that becomes available will be offered to the child at the top of the list.
  • All vacancies will be allocated as they arise.

We have 210 places in school and up to 60 part-time (30 full-time) places in the Nursery. If you are interested in visiting the school, please contact the school office on 03333 602100 to arrange a tour.

Medway council funds five morning or afternoon sessions for all 3 and 4 year olds in our Nursery and children start fully funded full-time education in the September of the year (1 Sept – 31 August) that they are 5.

If we are over-subscribed the following criteria will be applied in the following order:-

  • children with EHCPs (where we are the named school);
  • children in care;
  • a brother or sister already attends the school;
  • health considerations;
  • multiple birth children (as defined in the Medway co-ordinated admission scheme);
  • nearness to school.

Please complete the Application Form at the top of this section and return it to us via  The Headteacher meets every new family either personally or at a meeting arranged for all children joining our Foundation Stage.

Our priority is to ensure that your child settles happily into school.  We give your child (and you) the opportunity to become familiar with the school, its routines and show how you can help your child make the best of their learning.

Appeal Form & FAQs

Appeals for Year R (Academic Year 2024 – 2025)

Appealing an offer

You can appeal for any school named on your application that has not been able to offer your child a place.

To do this you will need to complete an appeal request form.

The form and details of where to return it to for each school will be published in the next steps guide on offer day.

The deadline for submitting an appeal is Tuesday 14 May 2024 for offers made on 16 April.

For late applications, appeal requests should be submitted within 20 school days of your application outcome.

You can appeal after these deadlines but your appeal might not be heard at the same time as those submitted on-time.

When you appeal you:

  • can only appeal for schools named on your application
  • can appeal for more than one school at the same time
  • must complete a request form for each school you're appealing for
  • can appeal for a school even if you have accepted another offer.

Schools will not know you have appealed for another school unless you tell them. The appeals for each school are completely independent of each other.
