No guar­an­tee of first-choice school place

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Testing Times Ahead -

Pass­ing the Kent Test is the first stage for pupils. Par­ents who reg­is­ter on­line will be sent their child’s as­sess­ment by e-mail af­ter 4pm on Oc­to­ber 12. Those who reg­is­ter by post will get the as­sess­ment de­ci­sion in a let­ter sent first class on Oc­to­ber 12.

Only then will the process of ap­ply­ing for a par­tic­u­lar school get un­der­way and all chil­dren – re­gard­less of whether they have ap­plied for a gram­mar – will be told on Na­tional Of­fer Day, March 1, 2018, which spe­cific school they have been of­fered a place at.

Par­ents can choose up to four schools in or­der of pref­er­ence. Par­ents have a right to ap­peal for any school they named and were not of­fered, and if their child is el­i­gi­ble to join a wait­ing list for their pre­ferred school they could later get a place which has be­come va­cant since the first of­fers were made.
