Friday 16th April is National Allocation Day for children entering primary school for the first time.
On this long anticipated day, primary school offers will be sent to parents and carers of young children around the country. It’s a very exciting time for everyone in primary education, and for all the young families introducing their young ones to their first year of primary school.
Every September, we have the privilege of welcoming a whole host of excited new faces to school life. To make sure that no family ends up disappointed as the new school year approaches, we’d like to encourage parents and carers to accept their offer of a place at our school as soon as they are able.
The deadline for accepting offers in Oxfordshire is 4th May. For more information, see the page on the council website here: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/schools/apply-school-place/infant-and-primary-school
If you applied after the January deadline, you will receive your offer on 10th June or later.
Southwold Primary School is a modern, innovative school where your child will be given the best possible opportunity to succeed in the securest of environments and with access to excellent resources.
A values-based approach runs through our curriculum and guides our pupils to meet standards of behaviour. Our expectations for everyone at our school are summarised in our school mission statement: “be all you can be and together we will shine.”
The early school years are very important for every child. We place a strong emphasis on making sure each child is given the support they need to successfully adapt to school life, no matter the different challenges they may face. If your child has been offered a place at our school, you won’t be disappointed. Make sure you accept your offer and let us know. We can’t wait to meet you and your child in September!
