New Academic Year 2014-2015

 

A huge welcome back to all for the start of this new academic year. We are looking forward to a year of great learning, fun and excitement here at Meopham. 

Applications for Secondary school places 

Applications are now open and will close on Friday 31 October 2014.The ​‘Admission to Secondary School in Kent 2015’ booklet is now available to download from http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/school-places.

We strongly advise parents to read through the booklet, and in particular the individual over-subscription criteria, before making an application. Information relating to secondary schools in Medway can be found at www.medway.gov.uk.

We understand that choosing a secondary school can be a difficult process and we are here to help. Should you need any further guidance or advice, please contact Mrs Howson, Miss Higham or the office, where we shall endeavour to answer your questions and sh​are previous experience. Visiting schools is an important part of the selection process and we are happy for you to take your child to as many secondary schools as you wish. Please advise us in advance via letter, this can be one letter listing all the days your child will be absent.

We would encourage parents to apply online at www.kent.gov.uk as this is the most secure way to make your application. Online applications must be submitted by 31st October 2014. Should you wish to complete a paper application- Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF), these are available from the office. Paper SCAFs will need to be completed and returned to the office by Friday 24 October 2014.

We would also urge you to ensure there are four different choices on your SCAF form as it has been our experience that parents who do not list four different choices have been given places in schools that they did not consider from the outset.

 

Meopham Community Academy  has been selected to become a National Teaching School.

Teaching Schools take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession, identifying leadership potential and providing support for other schools. Click here to read more on the Meopham CA pages of the KLZ.
