Admissions Arrangements including Appeals
Admission to Primary School including Appeals
We aim to make the transition to primary school as smooth as possible for both parents and children. With this in mind, we would encourage all prospective parents to visit the school in advance. Please email the school office to make an appointment. Applications will need to be made online directly to your local authority.
As we are a Church of England Voluntary Aided school we also require an additional clerical information form to be completed for faith-based applications which can be obtained from the school office, or by clicking on the form Clerical Reference Form below. This form should be returned directly to Hever Primary School.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2023, 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 Friday 7th July 2023. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department of 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 of Education.
