INTRODUCTION TO ST. BENEDICT'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL
Thank you for taking the time to consider St. Benedict's Catholic Primary School for your child. Choosing the right primary school is such a major decision for any family and we appreciate that you will need to take your time to look around. So feel free to learn as much as you can about our school before making your decision.
Parents will need to apply using the Medway Admissions Form on Medway Council's Website. Applications are made through the Local Authority and not directly to us. However we will need you to complete the supplementary form which is also on this page and return it to the school.
Mrs McAlpine, the Head Teacher will be happy to give you a tour of the school. Please contact the school office to book an appointment. Family morning prayer on the playground begins at 8.35 am. Children can arrive from 8.40am and the register is taken at 8.55am. The school day ends at 3.20pm.
The school participates in the local authority’s Fair Access Protocol to allocate places to vulnerable and other children in accordance with the School Admission Code 2014. Admitting pupils under the protocol may require the school to admit above the planned admission number for the relevant year group.
IN YEAR/CASUAL ADMISSIONS
For parents and carers who wish for their child to join our school in another year group other than Reception class/Early years, this is called an "in year/casual admission".
An application must be made to the school by submitting Medway's Local Authority " in year/casual admission form" to the school alongside our Supplementary Information Form. (SIF)
Parents/carers will be notified of the application outcome with 15 days of receipt of the application forms.
Parents/carers who have been refused a place at the school for their child have the right to appeal.
The appeals form needs to be completed and sent back into the school.
