Joining Us

There is a co-ordinated admissions process in Oxfordshire. This means that you can apply for a place here by completing an application form, known as the CAF (Primary), which is available either at the end of the booklet provided by Oxfordshire County Council or via the Local Authority website at The booklets are directly distributed to parents in September, from Oxfordshire County Council. If you do not receive one and would like one, please contact the Administrations Team, Children's Services, Oxfordshire County Council on 01865 815175.

You may apply for a place at our school whether or not you live in the Chadlington catchment area: we have a number of children travelling in from other areas.

At Chadlington CE Primary School we have a Foundation Stage Class (Reception) within our school. All children start school in the September of the academic year in which they turn five. Children are normally invited to visit school for a morning in the summer before they start school.

Parents are warmly welcomed to visit the school and appointments can be made through the School Office. We look forward to meeting you.
