Admissions Policy 2020/2021
Consultation on Admission Arrangements for 2020/21
As required by the School Admissions Code, the Governors of St Nicholas CE Infants’ School have initiated a consultation period on the Admissions Policy for 2020/2021, which will run until 31st January 2019.
If you require a paper copy, this can be requested by emailing the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org, telephoning 01491 836408 or writing to St Nicholas CE Infants’ School, St Nicholas Road, Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8HX.
Comments on, or objections to, the proposed arrangements can be made directly to the Clerk to Governors by 31st January 2019, using any of the contacts above.
The local authority (not the school) is responsible for allocating places at St Nicholas C.E. Infants' School. The school is able to take up to 60 children in each of the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 cohorts.
For Year 3, children transfer to our feeder school, Fir Tree Junior School, Radnor Road, Wallingford.

Admission to our Nursery Class
We also have a nursery class (called Mallards) here on site. Mallard class is led by a fully qualified teacher which gives children a great start to their journey in education. Our sessions run from 08.50-12.00 noon, Monday to Friday. Children are able to start here the term after their third birthday. If you wish to place your child's name on our waiting list please contact the school office on 01491 836408 or email email@example.com
Where does my child go after they've been to St Nicholas?
Here at St Nicholas we offer schooling for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 pupils. This means that at the end of Key Stage 1 children will need to transfer to a new school for Key Stage 2. Parents can choose where to send their child, but nearly all of our children transfer to Fir Tree Junior School. You will need to apply for a place via the local authority, but there has never been a case where a child doesn't get a place. We are the only school feeding into Fir Tree.
You can find out more about it by following the link below and if you would like to look around, Ms Khan is always happy to welcome prospective parents. It's a wonderful school offering a fantastic next step for the children of St Nicholas. Although we are two completely separate schools, we work very closely to support the children through the transition process. This includes visits to Fir Tree, pupils from Fir Tree visiting us, joint adventures (e.g. Spring Music Concert) and visits from Fir Tree staff to get to know the children. Either school would be happy to discuss transition arrangements.
