At Christopher Rawlins CE Primary School, pupils are normally admitted at the beginning of the school year (1 September – 31 August) in which they reach their fifth birthday.

There are 45 places (the published admission number “PAN” for Reception) available. Our policy is not to offer admission in September 2021 to children who were born on or after 1 September 2017.

Admission to the school during the school year depends on whether or not there are places available.


From September 2021, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 each has an admission number of 45 children.

Year 5 and 6 has an admission number of 30 children.


Following a meeting with the Headteacher in school, admission forms should be completed online with the Local Authority.

We currently have spaces in all year groups.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

The admission page at Oxfordshire County Council will also help you with any queries or please do ring the school office. If you would like to arrange a visit you are most welcome.


These policies have been approved by Local Governing Body (LGB), ODST/ODBE as well as the school having its own Admissions committee.

For entry into Christopher Rawlins School in September 2022 the closing date is January 15th 2022.
