In Year Casual Admission:If you wish your child to start at Oaks Primary Academy as a result of moving into the area and/or transferring from another school for educational reasons, please contact the academy directly if you wish to place your child on the list for future entrants.
For new Reception children:A KCC ‘Reception Common Application Form’ will need to be completed (this is an online process), expressing Oaks Primary Academy as your first preference. The office staff will be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Kent County Council’s website on School Admission can be found here.
Before making an application for an in-year admission you will need to contact the Academy directly and arrange a visit and meeting with one of our senior members of staff. If we have places available, you are more than welcome to have a look around the academy and we can answer any questions you may have. Please contact us to make an appointment.
We have specific dates and times for Open Days each year for our new reception intake – we publish dates online in September/October time for the following year’s intake into Reception. Pupils are admitted to school in accordance with the Oaks Primary Academy Admissions Policy. All forms should be completed and returned to the school by the deadline indicated on the form.
If you have any difficulty completing the KCC forms please do not hesitate to contact the school office, where we will do our best to help.

Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
