Admission to Thames View Primary School

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

Our school is two form entry, with a Published Admission Number of 60 per year group.

Places are allocated by Medway Education Authority according to its published admissions criteria in order of priority:

  • Children in public care
  • Children with a current family association 
  • Children with health, medical or special access reasons 
  • Children of teaching staff
  • Nearness of child's home

For further details of the admissions criteria, please read the Determined Admission Arrangements document below.

Prospective parents are always welcome to visit our school and are encouraged to telephone the school office for an appointment. Parents must apply to Medway Education Authority to gain a place to our school during the year before the child starts school.

If a place is gained at the school, we carry out home visits for those children that have not attended our Nursery.

Following the initial visit to the Early Years department, the Head of School gives an introductory talk and parents who may raise any questions they have. Children visit their classroom at least twice before they start school. 

The majority of children come to school confident and happy following a period of induction. Through the careful attention of all staff, good relationships are built that ensure that children and parents have a good introduction to the school and a positive start to education. The induction of this age group continues to be one of the school's strengths.
