Welcome to our school.  If you are thinking of sending your child to our school, then please use the information below to help navigate you to the right place and please contact us to arrange a visit too, at or on 01403 752207. 


All admissions to our school are managed through the Pupils Admissions Team at West Sussex County Council.  You can contact them directly via email at or via phone on 03330 142903. 


Applying for a place in Reception 2024 at Loxwood Primary School:

In the Autumn term, prior to the year your child is due to start school, you will receive information from West Sussex County Council (WSCC) to apply for a place at your local catchment school.  Please visit for more information regarding this.  All school places are administered via an online application. If you do not have access to the internet, our School Office can assist you with filling in the form online.  The form must be returned to WSCC by the 15th January 2024.

It is extremely important that you apply for a school place online.  If you don't apply you may not get a school of your choice. It is always recommended, that you put down three choices of schools that you would like your child to potentially go to.

You will receive notification directly from WSCC informing you which school your child has a place at in April 2024.
