Admission to infant and primary school

Applying to start infant and primary school for the first time.

How it works

Current status

National allocation day - applicants who applied by 15 January 2019 were notified about the outcome of their application on 16 April.

Second allocation round - applicants who applied between 16 January 2019 and 3 May 2019 will be sent letters by second class post on 12 June 2019 about the outcome of their applications.

Applicants who apply after 3 May will be written to later in the summer.

Parents of children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 (inclusive) need to apply for a primary or infant school place for their children.

List of schools

Details for every state-funded Oxfordshire school can be found on our list of schools page. On this page, you can find each school’s location, contact details, catchment area (where it has one), admissions rules and a five-year history of allocation data.

Junior schools are those that take children aged 7-11. Please see the admission to a junior school page for further details.

Don't delay

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.
