2022 school starters

Is your child starting school in September 2022? Come and meet us at our open mornings. Please call the school office to book.

New Starters / Admissions

Admission arrangements are made by Kent County Council (KCC) and parents apply for a place for their child in school via the Reception Common Admissions Form, on which they can name up to three chosen schools. A place is then offered direct from KCC.

You can view our current and next academic year policies under our Policies area of the website.

Children are admitted to school during the academic year in which they are five years old.

At St John’s, we have an agreed intake of 60 children into our EYFS (Reception) classes, who are mainly welcomed into the school at the start of the Autumn term, although a deferred start can be discussed. 

Governors have agreed the headteacher may increase class sizes to a maximum of 32 (64 for each year group) in KS2 (years 3-6).

Oversubscription criteria

If the number of preferences for St John’s is more than the 60 spaces available, places will be allocated in the following priority order:

  • Looked after children (LAC) who are, or have previously been, fostered or adopted
  • Children with brothers or sisters whose sibling(s) attend the school and will still be on roll at the time of admission.
  • Health and special access reasons
  • Church affiliation with regular attendance at St John’s Church, Weavering or St Mary the Virgin & All Saints, Boxley
  • Distance from school – distance calculation is provided by KCC

If you are interested in applying for a place at St John’s for your child, please contact the school and we will arrange for you to visit in the Autumn Term. Please contact Mrs Holt on 01622 735916 who will make an appointment for you to be taken on a tour of the school and visit classrooms where children are working.
