Admissions Clarification (Covid-19)

Holy Family Catholic Primary School Admission Arrangements 2021-2022

Parents and carers applying for places in Year R to Year 6 in the academic year 2021-2022 are asked to note the following statement in relation to the Mass Attendance oversubscription criterion set out in the school’s admission arrangements:

On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark, the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership  has agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted while churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to Covid-19.  This statement has been shared widely with parishes by the Education Commission in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.

The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.  If a parent or carer attended Mass at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time.  This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.

Application to Holy Family Catholic Primary School


Entrance September 2022- if your child was born between 1 September 201 and 31 August 2018

Applications for places will open with KCC on 5th November 2021. The closing date for online application is 17th January 2022. Further detail can be found by following the link below:


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.


Holy Family Catholic Primary School requires a supplementary form (SIF) in addition to the KCC online application. This is available to download from the school website (key information section) or can be collected from the school office during school hours.


Once completed, the supplementary form must be returned to the school office no later than the closing date 17th January 2022, with any relevant Baptism Certificates.


A supplementary form is required for all applications for a place in school, irrespective of religious belief, to ensure the correcting ranking position is applied, should the school be oversubscribed.


Applications are processed by KCC between the dates of 18th January 2022 and 19th April 2022.


An email will be sent from KCC on 19th April 2022, after 4pm, confirming places for the September 2018 intake.  You can log into your online application after 5pm to view your offer.


Kent Primary admissions can be contacted on  or 03000 412121
