Ethelbert Road is a one-form entry primary school. Our Published Admission Number (PAN) is 30, which means we have 30 places overall in our Reception class. As a local authority school we follow the DFE School Admissions Code and the Kent County Council Admissions Arrangements to ensure that school admissions are managed in a transparent and equitable way.


All applications for a Reception Class place must be made to the local authority.  Applications for a place should be made between November and January for the following September.  More information about applying for a school place can be found following the link below.

Criteria for Admissions

We are full for Reception 2019. Please contact the school if you would like to add your child to our waiting list.


Admissions into Reception Class September 2020

We are holding a number of guided tours for prospective parents so they can find out more about the exciting things Ethelbert Road has to offer. These tours usually last about 30 minutes and are led by the Headteacher Mrs Michele Kirkbride (or the Deputy Headteacher/SENCo Mr Kelvin Jones, in her absence).


We would love to show you around are wonderful school on one of the dates and times shown below. If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, please contact the school office to arrange a more suitable time and date.

Applications for children due to start primary school in September 2020 open in November 2019 and close in January 2020.


In Year Admissions

If your child is already at primary school and you wish to move them to Ethelbert Road you need to apply for an in-year admission place. You are more than welcome to ring us to arrange a visit and if you decide you would like a place in a year group for your child, you will need to complete the In-Year application form and return it to us.


There is no guarantee that we will be able to offer your child a place. Please note, you should not remove your child from their current school before you have an offer of a place at another school.
