Using Surrey County Council’s ‘Find a School’ application

Please note that the ‘find a school’ application available on Surrey County Council’s website is presented to parents as an indicator of what their home to school distance might be but it does not claim to present the home to school distance that will be used in the admissions process. ‘Find a school’ uses NLPG data to identify an address point within the child’s home address whereas the system used by the admissions team uses address base data. The difference is minimal.

 

In year admissions

As an academy Kingfield Primary School manages it’s own waiting lists for current years and works with Surrey to co-ordinate requests for the transfer to a new school. If there is a space available in the year group requested, you will, under normal circumstances be offered the place. If there is no place available, your child’s name will be added to our waiting list and we will contact you if a place becomes available.

 

Although we are an Academy Surrey County Council centrally manage our application forms.

Nursery Admissions 

Parents who wish their child to attend the Nursery are asked to fill in an application form and return this to the school office.

The closing date for Sept 2021 applications is 26th March 2021. However, if there is availability, you will be able to apply after this date.

 All children are entitled to 15 hours free per week and from Sept 2017 some children are entitled to up to 30 hours free (please visit: surreycc.gov.uk/30hourschildcare to see if you are eligible)

For the 15 hrs, we offer the following session options:

All day Monday & Tuesday 8.30am - 3pm plus Wednesday morning 8.30am-11.30am 

Wednesday afternoon 12.00pm - 3pm plus all day Thursday and Friday 8.30am - 3pm

Five morning sessions Monday - Friday 8.30am - 11.30am

Five afternoon sessions Monday - Friday 12.00pm - 3pm

Children who attend any full day sessions, will stay for a lunch session (1130 - 12). School lunches are £1.70 a day and must be paid for in advance. Alternatively, you can bring a packed lunch for your child if you prefer.

Additional sessions will be offered where available (up to a max of 30 hours per child). To book these, you will either need to supply the school with your eligibility code (if you are entitled to 30 hrs free childcare), or you can pay for top up sessions in advance (£16 per session). Please call the school if you have any questions about this.

Selection to the Nursery will be based on criteria in Surrey County Council's Nursery Admission Policy. The main intake is in September and is for children who are three years old by 31st August of that year. Offers of the nursery places will be sent out at the end of the Spring Term. If there are still spaces available, then we will offer places for a January intake and an April intake as well (but these are subject to availability).

Each child offered a place will receive a home visit from the Nursery Teacher and classroom assistant at the end of the summer term (notification of day & time will be sent during May/June). You and your child will then be invited for one or more visits to the nursery. Children are usually expected to be full-time straight away.

Nursery children wear a school sweatshirt, white polo neck shirt and blue track suit bottoms.
