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. A supportive and nurturing induction programme is in place to ensure pupils have a positive start to school. This includes home and garden visits by the teaching team, 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. 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:
