Dear Parent/Carers

Following on from National Offer Day – 16th April 2024, we would like to offer a very warm welcome to Oaklands Infants School to all our families that have been issued with a place in our Foundation stage for September 2024.  

Once the local authority has received all of your acceptance of placements by the deadline of 1st May 2024 (Wokingham) and 3rd May 2024 (Bracknell Forest), we will be provided with full details of all our families joining us for the new academic year.

Full details of the transition arrangements for starting school, can only be issued to parents once the full process, including acceptance and any appeals has been completed. However, in the meantime, we would like to provide you with some of the important key dates as follows:
