Is your child due to start Reception in September 2023?

15th January 2023: Oxfordshire County Council Application deadline for children due to start school in September 2023.

For those children who attend our Nursery, they must apply for a place in Reception through Oxfordshire County Council by filling in their CAPF form. These applications are dealt with the November – January before children are due to start the Reception class. We cannot guarantee a place in the Reception class so we urge you to get applications in on time and always state the three schools you would like your child to attend in order of preference.
