Admission Consultation

Please find below details of the consultation of admission arrangements for Oatlands Infant School and Oatlands Junior School.

Children join our school at the beginning of the academic year in which they have their fifth birthday. Children are admitted to school over the first two weeks of the term. Parents are given the option of letting their child attend on a part-time basis until the end of the Autumn term. Applications for a place in school must be made through the North Yorkshire County Council Admissions office where we follow their admission policy below. An information sheet is available in school giving details of the application process.

Parents are very welcome to come into school to have a look around prior to making an application. We do not have open days as we consider ourselves an open school and therefore operate an appointment system where you get to meet the Headteacher who will give you a tour of the school and answer any questions you may have. Please contact the school office to make arrangements for such a visit.


Preliminary visits

Pre-school children are invited into school for a half-day familiarisation visit during the term prior to admission. This visit is very important for the children as it enables them to meet the adults who will be working with them and the other children in their class. Prior to this parents will have been invited to an information evening when they can meet their child’s teacher.


The Reception teachers also visit many of the local pre-schools to enable the children to get to know them before they join our school.
