If you have a child born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 they will be eligible to start school in September 2024, you will need to shortly start thinking about which school to apply for.
Applications for children due to start primary school in September 2024 are co-ordinated by Kent County Council and parents will need to to access the Kent County Council website to apply for a place.
The application process will open online on Friday 3rd November 2023 and close at midnight on Monday 15th January 2024. You can apply for up to three schools, putting them in order of preference. You must submit one application per child. It is in your best interests to list three schools as naming one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another school, neither does naming a school more than once.
