Admission to Oatlands

If you are interested in applying for admission to Oatlands, we highly recommend that you make a visit to the school. Open mornings are held in October

and November. Dates and times for open mornings and instructions on how to book onto them will be published here at the beginning of the Autumn term 2017.


By law children must start full-time education no later than the  beginning  of the term following their fifth birthday. It is recognised that following the Rose Review parents have the right to send their child to school on a full-time basis from the September in the year in which they turn five. However Oatlands School Governors would wish parents to accept and follow current school policy on the admission of pupils which is:

The policy is based on sound educational practice which has helped Oatlands’ summer born pupils to achieve KS1 SATs outcomes significantly higher than those achieved by both summer and spring born pupils nationally. Parents should take this view into consideration when selecting a school for their child. The Headteacher is happy to discuss the policy with any parent who is allocated a place at Oatlands.
