Appeals Procedure


If you are moving into Medway and would like a place at any Medway school please contact Medway's Student Services Operations Team or visit www.medway.gov.uk


We have 90 places in school for entry to year 3.


Our Admissions Policy for 2017 follows Medway Council guidelines and can be found on our website.


If we are over-subscribed the following criteria will be applied in the following order: 

  • statemented children (where we are the named school)
  • children in care
  • attendance at paired infant school
  • sibling
  • medical, health and special access reasons
  • children of teaching staff
  • nearness to school


Our priority is to ensure that your child settles happily into school.  We give your child (and you) the opportunity to become familiar with the school, its routines and show how you can help your child make the best of their learning 


APPEALS for Year 3 – Academic Year 2017-2018 


18th April 2017. The offer of a place in a school will be given.


17th May 2017. This is the date by which an appeal for Year 3 for September 2017 must be handed in to St Margaret’s CE Juniors. Your appeal should state your reasons for this request. Additional information may be submitted later and full information regarding your appeal will be sent to you once the school receives your initial request in writing. 


Full details of how to appeal and an appeal form will be included with your school offer letter on 18th April 2017.


It is advisable to place your child on the school’s waiting list alongside any appeal request. You are more likely to be given a place from the waiting list than through the appeal process.  If you have any queries regarding an appeal, then you are asked to contact the school.
