Admissions: General
The school has a designated catchment area made up of certain streets in the surrounding locality. Click here to download a detailed map. The address which determines a child’s designated area is the place where the child is ordinarily resident with his/her parents or legal carer. Applications for entry to the reception class must be made prior to the LA’s published closing date for primary registrations. The school admission number is 60. Admissions are the responsibility of the Local Authority and places are allocated in line with their Admissions Policy.

Applications to enter the school in any other year group other than reception will initially require parents to contact Mrs Surch at the school. Formal applications must be made to Pupil and Student Services at Sanford House, Sanford Street, Swindon SN1 1QH.

Applications may be made to Pupil and Student Services at Sanford House in Swindon if any parent:
a) Lives in this school’s catchment area and wishes their child/children to attend another school
b) Wishes their child/children to attend Red Oaks Primary School but do not live in the designated catchment area
If you are considering option b) and your child is already at school, please make a point of discussing it with your child/children’s present Headteacher. Should you need any help or guidance with a school Transfer Form, please contact the school office on 01793 493920.
