Admissions to GEMS Didcot Primary Academy
Admissions to the Nursery Class - Acorns
The Academy operates its own admissions for the nursery class. There are 13 places available for children eligible for 30 hour spaces and then 13 spaces in the morning for the three hour session and 13 places in the afternoon. Children are eligible for a place in the nursery the term after they turn 3. To enquire about spaces you can either telephone the school, email the office, come in person or fill in our online form. In order to arrange a visit to the nursery you must book in advance. Please note, we are unable to combine hours, so if you would like your child to attend our school nursery this will be either for every morning from 8:45am till 11:45am or for each afternoon 12:30pm till 3:30pm.
Admissions to Reception - Cherry and Hazel Class
Admissions to the reception classes is organised by the County Council. There are 60 available spaces each year. We were over subscribed last year so would advise that you come and visit the school to find out more about us. We are operating open afternoons for prospective parents for September 2017 on Wednesdays. Please book in advance for these sessions as they are limited to 4 parents. Admissions for reception for children born from 1st September 2012 to 31st August 2013 need to apply for a reception place. Pupils within our nursery class also need to apply for a place at the school through the County Council admissions process. Click here to go to the online application.
