If your child is due to start primary school in September 2020 you will be offered a place on 16 April 2020.
We are insisting you do not visit the school to accept a place you have been offered or to provide address evidence in person. This is because schools are closed due coronavirus and also because of travel restrictions.
To inform the school you wish to accept or refuse a place, please email the school directly using the email address provided in your offer email or letter. You will also need to provide scanned or photographed copies of address evidence to schools to the same email address.
The deadline for returning the primary acceptance/refusal email is 6 May 2020. If you have been offered a Kent school but live outside Kent, you may also need to inform your own local authority.
The documents of proof of address must be included with the form as set out below:
These must show parents name and address also one must include child's name and address detailed in your application, also any insurance documentation, bills and payslips must be dated for when the application was made (5th Nov - 10 Feb 2020).
You will be expected to provide original copies of this evidence to the school at a later date even if these have been scanned to the school.
Proof of address evidence can be:
One of the following: • Council Tax statement for 2019/20 and 2020/21 • Signed Tenancy Agreement or Exchange of Contracts/Completion document
Two or more of the below… • Child/Working Tax Credit/Child Benefit/JSA/Disability Benefit Letter or Statement • Driving Licence • Schedule of Motor Insurance • Utility bills such as Gas/Water/Electric/Sky/Virgin Media/BT/Broadband etc • Payslip • Hospital or Doctor appointment letter Please Note - This is not an exhaustive list and the Local Authority reserves the right to request further supporting documentation where it believes the evidence provided is insufficient to prove residence at the application address.
With the current situation of schools closed, we can except forms and the above proof by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (We will ask for the paper copies once school is open again, so please keep them safe)
