Admissions Policy 2018-19 and 2019-20
If you are interested in your child joining us, either in our main intake into Reception or at any other time, please do come along and visit us and see what we have to offer. Mrs Louise Herbert (the headteacher) will meet you and give you a guided tour of the school. If you would like to make an appointment to visit, please contact Lyn Flack, the school administrator, on 01392 841279 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Devon County Council is responsible for our admissions policy because we are a Voluntary Controlled school. The policy is reviewed every year in the Council’s annual consultation in December and January. This welcomes the views of our local community.
If we can make a place available to you then we will. If not, you would have the right to appeal to a panel that is independent of the school and Devon and we would place your child’s name on a waiting list for vacancies.
If we have a vacancy then all children are welcome to join us. If we are oversubscribed, we still welcome all children but give priority to particular groups:
- children who are looked after by the local authority
- children with an exceptional need to come to our school
- children who live in our catchment
- children with siblings already here
- children who live closer to us.
These oversubscription criteria are only used when we are oversubscribed. For full details of our admission arrangements, please look at Devon’s co-ordinated admissions schemes as they constitute our policy.
We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council which help parents to make applications for admission to school. Parents can apply through Devon for in-year admissions and through the local authority where the child lives for the normal round of admissions.
If you would like further information, please contact us in school on 01392 841279 or Devon’s Admissions Service on 0345 155 1019 or go to:
