Reception Applications

For admissions into next year’s Reception, parents and carers are required to complete an application form known as the “Common Application Form” (CAF) through Kent County Council. This can be found by clicking here for the Kent County Council 'Applying for a School' web page which also provides other key information on primary school admissions. Forms should be submitted in accordance with the LA’s published deadlines for applications (normally early to mid-January before the academic year in which the child is eligible for entry).

Admissions Appeals Timetable

If your child is due to start primary school in September 2022, you can appeal if you are refused a place at one of your preferred schools on National Offer Day (Monday 17th April 2023).

You must submit your appeal before Friday 12th May 2023 for it to be considered by Wednesday 19 July 2023. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.

In Year Admission

If you are looking for a place at Tiger Primary because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another primary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general wellbeing, you are entitled to apply for a school place. Please contact Tiger Primary School Admissions Officer (Karen Thorpe) to request an In-Year Admissions Form or download a copy by pressing the In Year Admissions Form button. This form must be completed and returned to the Primary Academy Admissions Officer.  

Please Note: There is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you do have the right to appeal if you are declined a place.
