Ladygrove Park Primary School

Growing Excellence, Inspiring Success


Ladygrove Park Primary School has an early years foundation stage unit for rising 4 year olds (part-time nursery) and rising 5 year olds (full-time reception),

four key stage 1 classes, eight key stage 2 classes, a food technology room, library, hall, staffroom and offices.  Our admissions number for each group is

60 children and most classes have close to 30 children. All key stage 1 and 2 classes have access to wireless laptops.


We offer parents school tours on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings.  If you are interested in your child coming to our school, please get in touch and come and

look round. 


We welcome children into our foundation stage unit at the beginning of the term in which they are 4 years old.  At first they attend for half-day sessions;

they can attend full time in the September before their fifth birthday. We handle admissions for part-time places to the foundation stage ourselves.

Admissions to school follow the policy that has been established by the County Council which also manages the admissions process.  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.

Nursery Admissions

Our nursery is part of our foundation stage unit (shared with our 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 our reception classes.  We are excited to announce, from 1st November 2021 (Term 2), we will be offering nursery places (15 funded hours) in a slightly different way.  Nursery funded hours will be offered over 3 whole days (timings to be finalised), Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays (term time only).  Inquiries point towards parents preferring nursery hours to fit around our school day and if you are (or you know of any parents) interested in our nursery, please complete our nursery registration form (see link below) and either email to office.2609@ladygrove-park.oxon.sch.uk or post to LPPS, Avon Way, Didcot, Oxon OX11 7GB.
