In Year Admissions
Waiting lists have now been handed back to school. Parents need to complete an In Year Casual Application Form (IYCAF) and return to school. These forms can be obtained from school or downloaded from Kent Trust Web.
Parents will be notified by letter of the outcome of their application and children will be placed on a waiting list where appropriate.

Family holidays and your child's education
Department for Education (DfE) changes to The Education (Pupil Registration)(England)Regulations 2006 have removed all reference to family holiday and extended leave as well as the statutory threshold of ten school days.
From 1 September 2013, headteachers are unable to agree leave of absence during term time unless they are satisfied there are exceptional circumstances.
Should absence be agreed, headteachers can specify the number of days a pupil will be allowed to be absent from school.
Where leave of absence is not agreed and you take your child out of school or your child is away longer than was agreed or you have not applied in advance, the school will record the absence as unauthorised.
Headteachers cannot give retrospective approval.
If you take term-time leave of absence for a holiday that has not been authorised, your child’s school may ask the Local Authority to issue you with a Penalty Notice.
Penalty Notices are issued to each parent for each child who is absent without the agreement of the headteacher.
Penalty Notices carry a fine of £60 per parent per child if paid within 21 days, increasing to £120 per parent per child if paid between 22- 28 days.
There is no right of appeal against the issuing of a Penalty Notice because the authorisation of absence is the sole responsibility of the head teacher.
Should you not pay the Penalty Notice(s), the Local Authority may consider taking legal action under Section 444(1) Education Act 1996 for failure to ensure your child’s regular attendance at school.
If this happens, your case will take place before magistrates who could issue the maximum fine of £1000 per parent per child for this offence.
