Admissions Arrangements

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of Medway's admission arrangements below, including the Council's contact details and application form. 


As a maintained Local Authority school we follow Medway's admission arrangements and you need to contact Medway Council if you would like your child to attend Fairview. 



In summary, if our school is oversubscribed, all eligible children will be considered according to Medway's Admission criteria :


  • Children in Public Care
  • Current family association (brother or sister in the school at the time of application)

  • Child's health reasons (medical evidence must be provided which demonstrates a specific health reason that requires a child to attend the preferred school)

  • Nearness of children's homes


If there is a 'tie' within any of the above criteria, then distance from home to the school would be used as the 'tie breaker'.


Our admission number is 90 children per year group, and 60 in our Nursery.


Unfortunately, in line with Medway Council policy, there is no automatic admission into Reception for Fairview Nursery children; a separate application should be made for admission to Year R.


If we have places available, children may join our Nursery the Tuesday after their third birthday.  Children may not remain in the Nursery from the September following their fourth birthday, as we admit into our Reception in the September following a child’s fourth birthday.
