Choosing the right school for your child is a difficult decision; schools are mini communities, each with their own ethos, vision and culture and children are individuals, often suited to one school more than another. It is important, therefore, to be able to make an informed choice about potential schools and to be able to ask questions and to see first-hand what different schools can offer your child. For this reason Badgemore offers parents individual appointments with the Headteacher when visiting the school, including a tour of the school and grounds, the opportunity to see the school on a normal working day and to meet staff and children, and a chance to ask questions or request further information. Please contact the school office if you would like to make an appointment to visit our school.
Pupils are admitted to Badgemore Primary School in accordance with Oxfordshire County Council Policy (https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/public-site/school-admission-rules-and-policies).
The school serves the catchment area of North Henley, including the villages of Lower and Middle Assendon. We also welcome children from outside this area subject to space being available.
The school admits children as rising fives – children are admitted in September during the year in which they turn five. The maximum intake allowed is 30.
Applications to the school are given priority as listed below:
- Children living within the catchment area
- Children from outside the catchment area
- Children who already have siblings at our school
Parents have the right to appeal to an independent panel against any school admission decision.
