School Admissions (Reception to Year 6)

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important things you will do. It can be a daunting process. We would encourage you to visit the school, find out as much information as you can, not only the Ofsted report but also the schools' ethos, belief’s and aims.  The Christian faith underpins our approach to educating and nurturing your child, and we have a close association with St Oswald’s Church. You do not have to attend St Oswald’s Church or even be a Christian to come here-indeed, we encourage applications from children of all beliefs and backgrounds.

As a school we aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

Derbyshire County Council is the schools admissions authority. Information can be found using the link below on how to apply for your child’s place into the reception year.

The procedure for applying for reception places at primary and infant schools.


The allocation of school places for starting at primary school in the Reception year, or for transfers for older children at other times, is co-ordinated through the Derbyshire Local Authority. The coordinated scheme and admission arrangements for each academic year in Derbyshire community and voluntary-controlled schools can be viewed on Derbyshire Local Authority’s Apply for a school place - Derbyshire County Council

Schools must admit children up to their admission limit. For St Oswald's C.E. Primary School, this limit is 30 per year group from Reception through to Year 6. Any decisions to take class sizes over the limit are made solely by the Local Authority.
