Nurturing Foundations, Flourishing With God



We want to wish you all a warm welcome to Minster Church of England Primary School

Choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision. In the Autumn term we offer prospective families the opportunity to visit our school with their children to meet the team and see the environment. These bookable open sessions will enable you to see first-hand what we can offer your child as they embark on their school learning journey. 


Applications for children starting in Reception in September 2024 can be made from the beginning of November 2023, and must be made by 15th January 2024. 


At Minster we welcome children from all surrounding towns and villages. Do not be put off because you don't live in Minster. We currently have children from Broadstairs, in the east, and Herne Bay in the west!

Admissions Policy


Admission arrangements for a child to our School are in accordance with those published by the Kent Local Education Authority.

Process of Admission

  • Parents are invited to make an appointment with the Headteacher to look around school.
  • New children (4 year olds) are gradually phased in during their first term.  Parents will be invited to a pre-school assessment meeting with their teacher within the first two weeks prior to their child starting school.
  • We admit children once a year in September when they are four years old.  All children therefore enjoy 17 full terms and 1 part-time term before the end of Key Stage 1 (infants).
  • In term 6 prior to admission, parents and children have several opportunities, including an Open Day and Familiarisation Day, to meet staff in the Foundation Stage.

Information on the process and the on-line application links can be found on the KCC website. Please follow this link:

Parents of children with a disability are asked to meet with the Inclusion Leader to discuss how best the school can meet the needs of the child.
