Pupils will be admitted to the school without reference to ability, aptitude or background.

The school's standard number is 60, which means that admission for up to 60 children will be provided for each year.  Admissions to the reception classes will be at the beginning of the academic year in which a child's fifth birthday falls.  Where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, specific criteria will be applied.  

Our policy document below provides further information and details of the admissions criteria and how to apply for a place at South Avenue Primary School.

Further information relating to the Admissions Procedure can be found by clicking here on the Kent County Council website.


If your child is due to start primary school in September 2021 you can appeal between 16th April - 17 May 2021 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 16 July 2021.   
For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.  For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
