Admissions

Admission to the Main School for September 2018 (for the full admissions policy please click on the link at the bottom of this page)

A visit to the Infant School or Nursery can be arranged by appointment.
We have a planned admission level for our school each year of 90.  Most of the children in our Nursery transfer to the main school.  However it must be noted that should the school be over subscribed then the decision about admission to the school is based on the following criteria.
i) Children in public care
ii) Children who suffer from a medical or psychological condition which makes attendance at a particular school necessary.  This must be declared at the time of application.
iii) Children of staff where the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
iv) Sibling and distance priority. Highest priority will be given to applications from siblings and those without siblings living within 1000 metres from the school, including the siblings of those already attending Oak Farm Infant School.
v) Children living nearest to the school, measured in a straight line from the school to the home. 
Please note that attendance in our nursery cannot be taken into account when places are allocated in the Infant School.

Waiting List

If your application is unsuccessful your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list in order of distance from home to school.  Children moving into the area may take precedence over your child if their home address is nearer to the school.

How to Apply

All applications for the main school must be made through School Admissions at the London Borough of Hillingdon (www.hillingdon.gov.uk).

Transfer to and from the school

Transfer from Nursery to Infant School

Before transfer from Nursery to school the children receive a visit from their class teacher and spend 2 sessions in their new class.  During Nursery they visit the school every week to use the hall for PE  and ICT.
     
Transfer to Junior School

Relations with the junior school are most harmonious.  Staff in joint curriculum areas liaise regularly.  When the children transfer we aim for as smooth a transition as possible.  Children will meet their new junior teacher and then visit their new class in the junior school.  They are also given a guided tour by the children in Year 5.  Their present and new class teachers spend time discussing the progress and achievements of each child and National Curriculum records are passed on.
