We hope that you will want to send your child to Barton Junior School. Before you make your decision please do come and have a look around the School and ask any questions that you may have. We hold Open Days for prospective parents every year, please contact the school office to find out more details.


Preliminary Visits

In the summer term, before your child moves schools, we invite parents to a meeting that will provide information about the school and preparing for transition.
At Barton Junior School we are part of the Kent Local Authority admissions procedures. 

The Admissions and Transport Office for Kent is based at: 

Sessions House

The transition from Year 2 to Year 3 is viewed as extremely important by the school. We ensure that all children in Year 2 have the opportunity to visit Barton during the school year. The children who have chosen to come to Barton are invited into the school on Transition Days, providing the opportunity to see their new classroom and meet the adults who will be working with them.
