Admissions Arrangements

Main School

Thameside Primary School is an Academy which forms part of the Vale Academy Trust.  It follows the general admissions policy for Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) Local Authority and OCC deal with all our admissions for Primary School age children.

Applications for starting school in September 2020 should be made on line at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/admissions from

1st November 2019 and the closing date for applications is 15 January 2020. 

 

Key Dates

  • 1st November 2019 – parents can start to apply
  • 15th January 2020 – closing date for applications
  • 16th April 2020 – Letters (sent by second class post) and emails sent detailing the offer of a school place
  • September 2020 – start of the school year

If your application is late, it will be processed later in the year, and you are far less likely to get a place at one of your preferred schools.

Applications for in-year transfers should also be made on line at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/admissions.

If the school has spaces in any year group then parents/carers are entitled to take up those places for their children.  Each Year Group can take up to 30 pupils.  When the Local Authority allocates places to children reaching statutory school age, there may be a greater demand than there are places available.  In cases like this over subscription criteria will apply in the allocation of places. Please see the admissions policy for further details or contact the Admissions Team on 01865 783198.
