If you are considering sending your son or daughter to join us, I would like to assure you that as a school primarily established to serve the needs of a highly mobile military community, we are experts in ensuring that children settle quickly in our positive and supportive school community. Our Learning Leaders and tutoring system give targeted attention to all of our students and our curriculum, in most cases, has the flexibility to be able to respond to individual needs.
Each of our schools has a Mobility Assistant whose role is to ensure that your son/daughter transfers to us with the least possible impact on their continued education. Below are a range of documents that will help you make your decision and application. If we can help in any way, please let us know.
Please contact the school at the earliest instance, either by e-mail or phone:Mrs R Cripps-Thomas, School Admissions Officer
T:+357 2474 8340
You will then be e-mailed an Initial Contact Form and a copy of the MOD Schools Admission Form – please complete and return asap. Mrs Cripps-Thomas will also be able to answer any questions you may have.
The school is able to issue a Certificate of Educational Clearance during working days only. Please ensure you apply for your child’s place at KRS School in time, as a Certificate of Educational Clearance may not be issued during school holidays. Please aim to send in your child’s admission forms by Monday 18th June for a September start.
If your child has additional medical or Special Educational Needs, a MASO may need to take place before an Educational Clearance can be considered. In this case, please aim to send in your admissions forms by the 21st May, as a MASO can take up to 6-9 weeks. Any admissions after this date, which require a MASO, may result in children not receiving an Educational Clearance for a September start.
The MOD has introduced a new Admission System – MOD Assessment for Supportability Overseas (MASO). This requires that certain information must be supplied by the parent and the prospective pupils’ current school before a Certificate of Educational Clearance can be issued, and a place offered.
Mrs Cripps-Thomas will be able to advise you on what information is required.
Once the Certificate of Educational Clearance has been issued it must be forwarded to the Families Section:
E-mail: DESLCSMSS-FAMSEC-GROUP.UK@mod.uk or by post to:
Movement Support Services
Mail Point #3338
MOD Abbey Wood
When you have your flight confirmed contact Mrs Cripps-Thomas , so she can book you an appointment to come into KRS for your child’s Induction, complete the admission process, have a tour of the school and purchase uniform.
If your child has any SEN requirements or a disability you will need to contact Children’s Education Advisory Service (CEAS). Further information about CEAS is available www.gov.uk/guidance/childrens-education-advisory-serviceChildren’s Advisory Service (CEAS)
