Wheatley CE Primary School provides education for children of both sexes aged four to eleven. Children are invited to join the school in the September of the school year during which each child attains his/her fifth birthday.
If there are more applications than places, the Education Department at OCC will allocate places to pupils on the basis of the County’s published admission policy. For Wheatley CE Primary School, the criteria are set out below and in descending order of priority. All applications are via OCC Admissions Team at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/primaryadmissions.
- Children living in the school’s normal catchment area of Wheatley, Littleworth, Holton, Waterperry and Waterstock, provided that in the case of numbers in this category exceeding the Admission Number for the school, priority shall first be given to those children who have brothers or sisters already at the school and secondly to those children who live closest to the school by the nearest walking route.
- Brothers or sisters of children already attending the chosen school. Preference is given to those children whose brothers and sisters, already at the school, are closest to them in age.
- Children who attend the Foundation Stage Class and live outside the normal catchment area, priority being given to those who live closest to the school by the nearest walking route.
- If criteria 1, 2 and 3 above are exhausted and where places remain available, priority will be given to those children who live closest to the school by the nearest walking route from gate to gate. Walking route will be defined as on the Education Department’s Electronic Ordnance Survey Mapping System.
The school cannot cater for pupils in wheelchairs as it is built on eight levels with numerous sets of stairs.
