If you are interested in your child coming to our school, please do get in touch.
We welcome children into our Nursery Class (Class 1), within the Foundation Stage unit, at the beginning of the term in which they turn 4 years old. The school processes admissions to the Nursery class itself; admissions to statutory education beginning in the Reception year is processed via Oxfordshire County Council.
Admissions to school follow the policy that has been established by the County Council . Details are given on their website: go to https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/public-site/school-admission-rules-and-policies then follow the links to education and learning and schools.
There is high demand for places in the school and we have often been over-subscribed. However, it is impossible to predict the number of applications for places in the years to come. Spaces sometimes appear as families move away. If you are planning to move onto the estate, and you are looking for a school place, get in touch to check the current situation. Please ring us direct for further information.
We welcome children transferring from other schools and work hard to ensure that they settle in as quickly as possible. Parents of children in schools in the Didcot area must discuss moving schools with the Headteacher of their current school.
Year 6 Destinations
Our school is in the catchment area of Didcot Girl's School and St Birinus (Boy's School). Parents also consider Aureus Secondary School, King Alfred's School (Wantage) and Wallingford Secondary School.
Our Nursery is part of our Foundation Stage unit (shared with our two Reception classes). It provides an environment where children have fun, whilst learning through play, learning through experiences, gaining confidence and independence, in preparation for when they start full-time education in Reception. Nursery funded hours will be offered over 3 whole days (Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays - term time only). Inquiries point towards parents preferring Nursery hours to fit around our school day and, if you are interested in our Nursery, please complete our Nursery registration form (see link below) and either email to email@example.com or post to LPPS, Avon Way, Didcot, Oxon OX11 7GB.
