Saltwood Church of England School is a Voluntary-Aided School and as such, the Governing Body acts as the admissions authority for the school. Applications must be made by completing a RCAF on-line or by completing a paper version.  Please note that following our consultation in 2021, admission arrangements for 2022-23 have been altered by the governing body such that a supplementary information form will not be necessary for admissions from September 2022

Thank you for considering Saltwood Church of England Primary School for your child.  You are making an important decision and we wish to do all we can to support you in this process.

During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we aim to restrict the number of visitors to school, so will not be holding large ‘open day’ events this year. Tours of the school are available for individual families by appointment. Please contact the school office on 01303 266058 or  

You can apply for a place at our school via the KCC website any time between November 2021 and  January 2022.

You must submit your appeal before Tuesday 17 May 2022 for it to be considered by Tuesday 19 July 2022. 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.

For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education


Applying for a School Place Mid-Year

A parent can apply for a place for their child at any school at any time. To make an In-Year application parents should contact the school office and request an In Year Application Form. An offer will be made if places are available, or the child will be placed on our waiting list which is ranked by the application of our oversubscription criteria as detailed in the above Admission Arrangements
