Before you choose a school for your child, we strongly suggest you visit. If you contact the school office, we can arrange a time for you to meet the Headteacher and have a guided tour, during which we will be able to answer any questions you have. We hope you will like what you see!

Admissions to the Reception Class at Brize Norton Primary School are managed by Oxfordshire County Council. We have 17 places each year in our Reception class, for children who will turn five during the academic year. Applications can be made through the Oxfordshire County Council website, and our school office can give advice on this.

We also have a few places in other year groups for children moving into the area or transferring from other schools; contact the school to find out what places are available and to arrange a tour. These places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To apply, you need to fill in the In-Year Application Form at the bottom of this page and return it to the school office. 

Children with a Statement of Special Educational Need or with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan naming Brize Norton Primary School will always be offered places. If there is then greater demand for admission than there are places available, the following criteria will be applied in the order set out below:

  1. Children who are or who have been looked after by a Local Authority.
  2. Families with exceptional medical or social needs that make it essential that their child attends Brize Norton Primary School rather than any other.
  3. Children who live in the designated area of Brize Norton village and have a brother or sister on roll at the time of application (or with an accepted offer of a place) who will still be attending at the time of entry.
  4. Children who live in the designated area of Brize Norton village.
  5. Children who live outside the designated area and have a brother or sister on roll at the time of application (or with an accepted offer of a place) who will still be attending at the time of entry.
  6. Children who live outside the designated area, admitted in order of distance from the school (calculated as a straight line). 

If you apply and are unsuccessful, you are welcome to appeal. If you wish to make an appeal, please download and complete the Admissions Appeal Form from the bottom of this page. The timetable for appeals is also attached here and appeals are managed by the school's governing body.
