From 1st November 2019 we are accepting applications for Reception entry in September 2020. Parents should be encouraged to apply online as this is the most secure way of applying, but if parents cannot access the online process, we do have a paper form if required.
Starting School Brochures are no longer being printed, but all the information contained in the brochure is available on our admissions website.
The closing date of Reception applications is 15th January 2020, and the National offer date is 16th April 2020. The 15th January closing date is extremely important, as late applications will not be considered until May 2020 after the first offers have been made. Parents who make a late application are less likely to be offered a place at one of their preferred schools. The details of the admissions process is widely advertised in Doctors Surgeries, Libraries, Parish Councils, and made available to the 2,500 subscribers to the OCC Early Years Newsletter.
It is PARENTS responsibility to make an application. Even if a child attends a Nursery at the school, they still need to apply for a Reception place.
