nursery admissions process

Parents need to express an interest in a nursery place directly to the school by 17th May 2021. if they are seeking a place for September 2021. The oversubscription criteria and the catchment area are the same as for the school, however, entitlement to free provision (15 or 30 hours per week) is subject to Oxfordshire County Council’s guidelines. If there is availability, parents will also be able to purchase additional hours to their free entitlement. 

send provision

The school will eventually include an eight-place specialist resourced provision for children with communication and interaction needs (autism, and speech and language difficulties), and physical or sensory needs. Admissions for these places will be coordinated with Oxfordshire County Council and are for children with Education Health Care Plans only.

It will be a progressive Church of England (Anglican) school in character, but it will be for children of all faiths and none. No preference will be given to practising Anglican families in the admissions process. Click HERE to find out more about ODBE.
