Admissions (Including Nursery)

For information regarding our admission arrangements, please use the drop-down boxes below. Our full Admissions Arrangements document can be accessed via the link.

We currently go up to year 3, but as our status has changed from Infant to Primary, from September 2023 our current year 2 moved up to year 3. There is no need for current pupils to apply for a Year 3 place. 

From thereon, all the below year groups will follow up through the school to Year 6.

Nursery admissions 

At Greenvale Primary School, we have a Nursery that is able to take children from the age of 3. 

We offer free nursery places to children starting the term after their 3rd birthday. Children can attend for up to 5 sessions (15 hours) a week. The sessions are mornings only, 8.40 - 11.40

Our main intake is September, along with January and Easter. 

To find out if we have spaces available, please contact the school office.

Reception admissions (a child's first year at school)

Greenvale Primary School admits children into Reception at the beginning of the Autumn Term (Term 1). 
Places are offered to children following receipt of form PCAF by the local Education Authority (Medway) which also outlines the criteria for admission.

If the school is oversubscribed, the Medway Council Admissions criteria will be used to determine further admissions.  The admission arrangements for disabled children are the same as for any other pupils and the school will do everything possible to ensure such children are treated fairly and have the same opportunities as other children. 

For more information regarding Admissions, including a full list of cut-off dates for applications, please click here to visit the Medway Council Admissions website.


Casual in-year admissions

Casual ‘In Year’ Admission is either for a child who requires a place at a Medway School, a child who is currently being educated at home and now requires a Medway school place, or a child currently attending a Medway school who wishes to transfer.

To find out if there are spaces at Greenvale Primary School and to apply, please contact the school office. Please be aware that we only go up to Year 2. We do not have Years 3-6 at this time. From September 2023 we will have a Year 3.

Alternatively, please go direct to the Medway Council Admissions site. See the link below.


Medway Council will deal with appeals and full information of this process is detailed on their website.
