Pupil Premium Priority

Admissions Over-subscription Criteria Priority 2

A girl who has been deemed selective in the Kent 11+ tests and is in receipt of Pupil Premium will be ranked within Priority 2 of our over-subscription criteria.

A child is eligible for Pupil Premium where she has been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. This does not include children who have only been eligible to receive Universal Infant Free School Meals. Pupil Premium is also afforded to Children in Local Authority Care or Previously in Local Authority Care, however these children will be ranked within Priority 1.              

Parents/Carers wishing to apply under this criterion must ensure they complete a Supplementary Information Form, attaching the requested proof of eligibility and return it to the school by the deadline indicated on the form.

Appealing for a school place

If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2021 you can appeal between 1st March - 28th March 2021 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 14th June 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.

If you named our school as a preference on your Secondary Common Application Form and your daughter was not offered a place with us on 1st March, you have the right to appeal this decision. Due to the exceptional circumstances regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, you will not be required to attend a meeting. The Independent Appeals Panel intends that your appeal will be conducted on the basis of written submissions only.
