Sheldwich Primary School

Classes R - 6 In-Year Admissions (e.g. moving here from another school)

If you would like your child to attend our school, please telephone us on 01795 532779 and we will organise a meeting with Mrs Garrett, the headteacher, who will take you on a tour of our lovely school.


Class R

If your child is due to start in Class R we would normally show you around the year before your child is due to start, e.g. If your child is due to start school in September 2024, we will show parents around between September and December 2023. Please call the office to book an appointment. 



Parents and carers have the right to appeal if their child is not offered a place. For admission in September 2023, appeals  must be lodged between 17th April 2023 and 12th May 2023 and they will be heard during the first week of June 2023. Please contact the school for an appeals pack and when complete, send you appeal to the Clerk to the Governors at the school. The appeal will be heard by an independent appeals panel within 40 school days in accordance of the statutory guidance. For late applications, appeals are heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 days of the appeal being lodged.


Little Hedgehogs Pre-School

If your child is between 2years 6 months and 4 years old  and you are interested in him or her attending our pre-school, please telephone the school office anytime to make an appointment for a look around.

Give yourself plenty of time as you will not want to leave!
