William Morris Primary School admission arrangements for 2021/2022

Applications for a place at the school are managed by Oxfordshire Local Authority through their coordinated admissions process online.  The deadline for receipt of applications is 15 January 2022 and you will be able to apply from 1st November 2021. 

Our school has recently been judged Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. There is high demand for places in the school and we have often been over-subscribed. It is essential that you submit your applications on time.  Please ring us direct if you need any information regarding this.

From 1st November 2021 - 15th January 2022, you are able to apply online for a Reception place. You can do that by visiting the link below:

William Morris Primary School Consultation: Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24

We are consulting on our Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. This consultation commenced at 9am Friday 12 November 2021 and will close at 5pm on Monday 10th January 2021. To take part in the consultation, please email your comments to Karen Williams, Cluster Office Manager using the following email address: info@williammorrisschool.org

Our Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24 are available here in full. Anyone wishing to participate in the consultation is encouraged to read these in detail. 

The key changes to our admissions arrangements are as follows:

1.      The removal of the ‘social/medical’ oversubscription criteria as our school aspire support any child whatever their needs.

This consultation is taking place in accordance with the requirements as set out in the School Admissions Code (here). The consultation must take place for six weeks and it is good practice that this six-week period excludes school holidays.

The GLF Trust Board is the Admissions Authority for our School. It will review all responses to the consultation prior to agreeing the final Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. These will be published on our website no later than Tuesday 15 March 2022, in line with the statutory requirement.
