Safeguarding and keeping children safe is our top priority.
Shenington C of E (VA) Primary School adheres to the Oxfordshire County Council Schools Admissions Policy.
Traditionally, children aged 4-11 years who lived in the villages of Shenington and Alkerton attended our school. Nowadays we also admit children from outside these villages, including the town of Banbury and other villages in Oxfordshire and out of county villages in Warwickshire, providing we have enough space in the year group concerned. To discuss place availability, please contact the school office.
Applications for children living in Oxfordshire should be made online through Oxfordshire County Council. Out of county applications should be made via your Local Authority (LA) – for example, applications for children living in Warwickshire should be made online through Warwickshire County Council.
