Our admissions number for each year group is 60 children and most classes have close to 30 children. All key stage 1 and 2 classes have access to wireless laptops and Chromebooks, for Computing as well as cross-curricular IT use.
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or post to LPPS, Avon Way, Didcot, Oxon OX11 7GB.
