If you are interested in visiting our school why not call and make an appointment for a school tour.
The School Admissions Code of Practice recommends that priority be given to ‘Looked After’ children when setting over subscription criteria. In light of this, the following over subscription criteria are proposed, for determining the allocation of places where there are more applications than places available:
- Children who are in Public Care (Looked After Children)
- Children living in the school’s designated area with a sibling who will be attending the school at the time of admission.
- Other children living in the school’s designated area.
- Children living outside the school’s designated area, but with a sibling who will be attending the school at the time of admission
- Other children living outside the school’s designated area
A child who has an Education, Health and Care Plan, where the School is named on the plan, will have precedence for a school place.
If it is necessary to distinguish between children in a particular category, priority will be determined by the age of the child i.e. the earlier the date of birth, the higher the priority. Priority may be given (with approval of Senior Officers) to the admission of a child for whom an exceptional medical or social justification is demonstrated. Visit www.devon.gov.uk and search ‘Admissions’ for more information.
