The Parochial School is a Church of England Aided Primary School for children aged 5 - 11 years.
School times are between 08.55- 12.00am and 13.10 - 15.15pm. This results in a teaching time of 23 hours 10 minutes for children in KS2 and 22 hours 20 minutes for children at KS1
The present permitted intake number of five-year olds, to this school, is 30. Should the number of admission forms submitted exceed this number, preference is given on the following basis, as agreed between the Diocesan Education Committee, and the Kent Education Committee;
1. Children with Church Affiliations.
2. Children with family connections with the school.
3. Children with medical or social needs.
If there is still room after children in categories 1, 2 and 3 above have been admitted, consideration may be given to the admission of other children living in the neighbourhood.
In practice the school is heavily oversubscribed (this year we have 46 applicants for 30 places). The intake is therefore based approximately 55% in category 1 and 40% in category 2.
The school was last inspected in December 2003 (Our inspection report is available on the Ofsted database in PDF format at
