West Kidlington Primary & Nursery School About Us

Admissions

Overview

A warm welcome and thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at our primary school.

We would love to get to know your child. West Kidlington offers a warm, caring environment where children thrive. We work to provide all pupils with a solid academic footing, which ensures that every child reaches their full potential, especially in the key areas of literacy, numeracy, science, and ICT. Our school also aims to help children develop as people, secure in knowing who they are and what they want from life. Our teaching philosophy is simple: we aim to combine the best of tried-and-tested methodology with new and innovative ways of teaching.

West Kidlington’s Ofsted inspection in 2019 recognised these strengths, with an overall effectiveness rating of Good with Outstanding personal development.

On this page, you can find information about how to apply for a place, in-year admissions, open events, and what to expect for your child’s first days at the school.

Settling in

Pupils are invited into the school for visits. This will help your child become familiar with the surroundings and routines of school.

We offer transition sessions for each child during the school summer term before they start school for the first time as a four-year-old.

During the period before any child starts at West Kidlington, we will arrange meetings for parents to discuss our partnership with you and talk about any concerns you might have. We are keen to meet families and give them the very best support in enabling children to become part of our community.
