If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018, they will be eligible for a primary school place in September 2022. 


Applications open in November 2021 and close in January 2022.














Hadlow Primary School is for children aged between four and eleven years. We will be pleased to make arrangements for you to visit the school and to discuss your child’s education.


Children are admitted to the school in the Autumn Term of the academic year in which they have their fifth birthday. Parents should complete an application form and provide proof of the date of birth. The Head of School will then contact parents during the term before the child starts school. An extensive introductory programme has been devised to ensure pupils have a positive start to school. The programme includes home visits by the class teacher and teaching assistant, parents' meetings and a gradual introduction of children to school life.


At Hadlow Primary School we aim to make the transition from home to school as easy as possible for parents and children. We invite parents to attend many of the events that we hold at the school in the year prior to entry. In the term before entry children are invited to visit the school on several occasions, both with playgroups and parents. All parents have an opportunity to meet their child’s teacher before the child starts school.


30 places are normally available for Reception class admissions.


If you are moving into the area and would like to enrol your child at the school, our only restriction is the availability of places.


Admissions Policy

The school aims to maintain classes at a reasonable size and it is therefore necessary to apply a formal admissions policy. When places are limited the following priorities are given -


  • Parental wishes
  • Siblings already at the school
  • Health reasons
  • Nearness to school



A new intake pack is given to help parents with the process. Please see the documents and links below:

Hi, I'm Mrs Lissenden. Our aim in Apple Class is for all children to feel safe, happy and secure. We have created a home from home with a warm and welcoming environment. Your children will be looked after, nurtured and loved in their first year of school.
