Admissions to our school

 

If you are considering a place for your child here, we would be pleased to meet you and talk about what we have to offer. If you would like to arrange a visit, please do get in touch with us by phone, email or letter.

 

Although we are our own admissions authority and are responsible for setting our admissions policy and making decisions when an application is made to join us, we use the services of Devon County Council's Admissions Service to manage applications on our behalf. For further information or advice about the admissions process, parents can call My Devon on 0345 155 1019 or visit www.devon.gov.uk/admissions.

 

Parents can apply for a Reception  place here using their Local Authority Common Application Form (for children who live in the Devon County Council area, this is available at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline or by requesting a copy of the D-CAF1 from My Devon. Applications should be made up to the national closing date of 15 January. Late applications may be at a disadvantage. Decisions are sent to parents around 16 April.

 

For admissions at any time after the start of the Reception year you can apply using the D-CAF, wherever your child lives. Copies are available from My Devon.
