School Admissions Statement
Admissions to Nursery
If you would like your child to start at our nursery, you will need to complete a Nursery Class Admissions Enquiry form, available below. You are very welcome to see our Nursery Class in action, please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
Children are admitted to our nursery the term after they turn three. Terms start in September, January and after the Easter break in April. Once your place has been confirmed there will be settling in visits prior to your child starting with us.
Please note that the school directly allocates the spaces in nursery, but all Oxfordshire County Council maintained nurseries must follow the relevant admissions policy, and you can find a copy of the latest policy on admissions to nursery below.

We support the right of parents to defer entry to the Reception class for one year if their child is born after 31st April and would benefit from this.
Transferring and moving schools in year
Children are, of course, welcome to join us at any stage in their primary school career. An experienced staff team and friendly children ease the time of transfer from one school to another for your child. If you are looking to change schools, please make sure that you have spoken to your child's current head teacher prior to your visit. We will arrange some 'ice breaker' days so that your child has a smooth transition into the school. If you would like your child to attend our school, please contact the school office to check if we have spaces and also to arrange a visit to the school.
All admissions in-year are also controlled by Oxfordshire County Council. Please see link below for their website, which contains guidance and the online application form you will need.

Over the last five years the school has grown from 85 to over 165 pupils, and is set to grow even further in the future. Due to the small class structure that we have in place to accommodate this growth we do have limited spaces in most year groups in KS1 and KS2. Please do contact the school for further details.
