We are a Kent County Council school. We serve families from Kent and Surrey including Crockham Hill, Marlpit Hill, Pootings, Four Elms, Westerham, Limpsfield Chart, Hurst Green and more.
We admit 20 children to each year group. Our admission patterns to Reception change from year to year, depending on the number of siblings of children currently in the school who apply. We operate waiting lists where we have no vacancies in a year group. To find out if we have any vacancies please contact the school office.
All places for Reception and any vacancies in all year groups are allocated according to the school’s over subscription criteria. These are set by Kent County Council. Currently, in priority order, these are
- Children in Local Authority Care or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order
- Attendance at a linked school (not relevant to Crockham Hill CE Primary School)
- Current Family Association (sibling)
- Health, Social and Special Access Reasons
- Nearness of Children’s Homes to School.
For full information about admissions for Reception please visit the county websites. To apply for a Reception place at Crockham Hill C E Primary School you should apply to the county where you live and name us on their form. So, if you live in Surrey name us on your Surrey form.
The Open School events offer prospective parents the opportunity to see our school in action. There will be a presentation by some of our children from Year 1-Year 6 so you will have an opportunity to see and hear what learning is like for children at Crockham Hill. You will also meet the headteacher, Mrs Jayne Ingman, who will give you a full briefing about how the admission process works for our school. Finally some of our Year 6 children will take you on a guided tour. If we have not answered all your questions by the end of the tour Mrs Ingman will be available to answer more specific, or private, questions.
If you would like us to contact you when we have the Open Day dates please complete and send an expression of interest form to the school office. Please see the form below.
JOINING US AT ANY OTHER TIME
If you are looking for a school place at any other point than at the beginning of the Reception year please contact the school office to make an initial enquiry about whether we have a vacancy in your child’s year group. We do maintain a waiting list for places should you wish to have your child added to this and the office can talk you through the process. Please note that waiting lists are maintained under the same oversubscription criteria as outlined above.
