Thank you for taking the time to consider St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Primary School for your child.  Choosing the right primary school for your child is an extremely important decision for families therefore, we would encourage you to book a tour and explore our website to learn more about our school.

Parents will need to apply using the Medway online Admissions Form on Medway Councils Website to apply for a place in Reception 2024. Applications are made through the Local Authority and not directly to us. However we will need you to complete the Supplementary Information Form which is also on this page and return it to the school.

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 Application 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 Appeal Form needs to be completed and sent back into the school.
