If you have been unsuccessful in gaining a place for you child at Weald Community Primary School, then please add your name to the waiting list which by phoning the School Office: 01732 463307 or emailing

In-Year Admissions

To apply for a place outside of the Reception Admissions round then you will need to complete an In Year Casual Application Form (IYCAF).  This form will need to be completed and returned directly to the School Office at Weald. Please contact Cathrin Beddoe (School Office Manager) if you require further assistance with this form or any other aspects of applying for a place at our school.

We currently have limited spaces in the school. If you wish to add your child’s name to the waiting list or have any queries about admissions, please phone the school office on 01732 463307.  

Visiting the School

The best way to decide upon the right school for a child, is to visit it!  Parents and carers of prospective pupils are very welcome to visit the school on one of our Open Mornings (advertised on the homepage of the website) or at any time by appointment through the School Office. Please contact the school office to make an appointment

Children come to the school from Weald, Hildenborough, Sevenoaks and the surrounding area. Click here for the school’s full  ADMISSIONS POLICY 2021


Parking for drop-off and pick-up is on Long Barn Road at the front of the school. Please observe the yellow zig-zag regulations, drive carefully through the village and avoid parking across and turning in the driveways of neighbouring properties. Parents should hand over their children at the school-gate and should not wait on the narrow pavement adjacent to the railings as this causes an obstruction to pedestrians.


If the school has to be closed for any reason (for example, owing to extreme weather conditions) a message will be posted on the homepage of the school website. A Teachers2Parents text and email will also be sent to all parents. Announcements are also made on BBC Radio Kent (96.7 fm or DAB) and other local radio stations.

Kent County Council Education Penalty Notices Code of Conduct

  • After 8.55 a.m., parents must bring children to the School Office. This will be recorded as a late mark.
  • Arrival after 9.05 a.m. will be recorded as unauthorised absence
  • If your child is unable to attend school owing to illness, please phone the school on the morning of absence and support this with a letter or email to the School Office:

  • Requests for absence for holiday or recreational purposes will be recorded as unauthorised.

Children's Health

The majority of the staff at Weald are qualified first-aiders. If your child becomes unwell at school and requires collection, you will be called.

Please note the following extracts from the school’s Managing Medical Conditions & Medicines Policy 2018

“Medicines are only administered in school when essential, i.e. when it would be detrimental to a child’s health if the medicine were not taken during the school day. 

Medicines must be in the original container as dispensed and include instructions for dosage and administration. 

We encourage parents/carers to administer medicines at home wherever possible (for example, antibiotics which often require 3 doses a day can be given before school, after school and at bedtime). 

No child is given medicine without a care plan form being filled in by the parent/carer.”

Communication with School

We greatly value our regular contact with parents. For routine conversations with Class Teachers, we ask that you do so at the end of the day at pick-up. Longer appointments should be made through the School Office. Formal Parent Consultation Evenings are held twice yearly (Autumn and Spring Terms) and a full written report is issued at the end of the Summer Term. In addition, there is the opportunity to meet Class Teachers at the start of each academic year for a Curriculum Information Evening.
