Application to Holy Family Catholic Primary School

 

Entrance September 2023- if your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019

Applications for places will open with KCC on 4th November 2022. The closing date for online application is 16th January 2023. Further detail can be found by following the link below:

 

http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/school-places/primary-school-places

 

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.

 

https://www.holyfamily.kent.sch.uk/admissions/

 

Once completed, the supplementary form must be returned to the school office no later than the closing date 16th January 2023, 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 17th January 2023 and 16th April 2023.

 

An email will be sent from KCC on 17th April 2023, after 4pm, confirming places for the September 2023 intake.  You can log into your online application after 5pm to view your offer.
