Admissions to Didcot Primary Academy

Admissions to the Nursery Class - Acorns

The Academy operates its own admissions for the nursery class. There will be 26 full time spaces available. These will be split into 30 hour and 15 hour spaces as needed (as per the criteria specified in the nursery admissions document on this page). 

 

Children who attend nursery for 30 hours a week have the option of staying for lunch at a cost of £6 per day. The timings for 30 hour spaces are 8:45am till 11:45am and 12:30pm till 3:30pm. Lunch will be 11.45am to 12.30pm and children have to bring a packed lunch from home. 

 

Children are eligible for a place in the nursery the term after they turn 3.  To enquire about spaces you can either telephone the school, email the office or come in person. Please note, we are unable to combine hours, so if you would like your child to attend our school nursery this will be either for every morning from 8:45am till 11:45am or for each afternoon 12:30pm till 3:30pm. 

 

Admissions to Reception - Cherry and Hazel Class

Admissions to the Reception classes is organised by the County Council.  There are 60 available spaces each year.  We were over subscribed last year so would advise that you come and visit the school to find out more about us.  Pupils within our nursery class also need to apply for a place at the school through the County Council admissions process.  Click here to go to the online application.
