Applying for a place
Does your child start school in September 2023?
Parents/carers should apply between 1 November 2022 and 15 January 2023.
Online applications are made via Oxfordshire County Council's School Admissions.
How do I get a place for my child?
We welcome enquiries from parents of children of any age, and are delighted to show you around our school to help you choose the school that is right for your child.
School admission rules and policies can be found at Oxfordshire County Council.
At what age can my child start school?
You will be offered a full time place for your child for the September after their fourth birthday. You may choose to leave your child at home or in their Foundation Stage provider for a little longer if you feel that he/she is not ready for mainstream school.
How is my child introduced to school?
To ensure a smooth transition to school, your child's new teacher will whenever possible, visit your child at nursery or pre-school to introduce themselves and find out as much about them as possible. You and your child will be invited to class visits. On your last visit you will be encouraged to leave your child for a short while after settling them down with the teacher. During this time you are usually invited to a meeting with the Head and representatives of the school community. You will also have the opportunity to meet your child's teacher separately.
When your child joins the school there is a gradual build up of time in the school environment. The first week, the children stay for mornings only, the second week they stay on for lunch and then they will begin full time in the third week.
