St Laurence School is an aided school and, as such, the School Governors are responsible for admitting children to the school.

The school admits children to the Foundation Class through Oxfordshire County Council's Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.

Children are admitted to the Foundation Stage in the September following their fourth birthday. If you wish to apply for a place for your child you will need to complete two forms:

Oxfordshire County Council's Common Admission Preference Form (CAPF) - this can be obtained from OCC, normally in the September prior to your child starting school.

  • Details of OCC's Admissions Scheme can be found on their website -
  • Our own Supplementary Application form. You can submit your Supplementary Form to us before the CAPF form is published. We will then have your details on file, although places are allocated strictly according to the school's Admissions Policy, and early application confers no advantage.
